A Green way of using rainwater with the convenience of city water. The attached solar regenerated pump enables you to water plants even when the water in the barrels falls low enough that the pressure would barely be enough to fill a hand watering jug from the faucet. If there is water in the tank you will have pressure. The twin 85 gallon barrels are raised onto a very sturdy 4x4 box assembly from recycled wood, held together with new carriage bolts because the total weight of all the water when full is approx 1700lbs. This frame is resting on eight 2 inch thick 18 inch square cement pads to prevent sinking. The barrels are raised to increase the head pressure and decrease the work load on the pump.
