Re: Advice

I have been kicking around the idea of a rain catcher...I am using thick clear plastic re-enforced around the edges with eyelets and a hole in the center with plastic tube fixed so i can direct it to the cans...

Sound like a good set up. Once you get farther south, SC, Georgia and especially Florida, Afternoon downpours can fill your water tanks. And there is a lot to be said for a morning cup of coffee made from fresh rainwater. We did add a debris filter in the line off the watercatcher for bits that get washed off the catcher. Chuck
