Adding a Rain Barrel to Your Eastern South Dakota Home’s Gutter System Brings Many Benefits
Did you know that there are many uses for all of that rainwater your home’s gutters are designed to dispose of? Rain barrels are becoming an increasingly popular option among homeowners who are looking to take advantage of having a free supply of extra water on hand. It’s a low-cost, high-yield investment, and you can turn to LeafGuard of South Dakota to have one installed at your home.
How Rain Collection Barrels Work
A rain barrel is simply a vessel with several spigots that is affixed to your gutters’ downspout. Water accumulates in the barrel when it rains, and you’re able to use it right away if you wish. Rain barrels can also come equipped with screens to keep debris and insects out. It’s so simple, yet it can help homeowners in so many ways.
Benefits of Rain Barrels
There are many good reasons to invest in a rain barrel, including that:
- You could save money – With a free source of water available, you won’t have to use your home’s own water source to water your garden, clean your windows, wash your car, fill your fountains, and more. Just make sure to keep the rain barrel clean and remember to drain it when not in use for extended periods of time.
- You could prevent erosion – With a new place for stormwater to go, localized erosion and flooding are less likely to occur in the areas near your downspouts.
- You could help reduce stormwater runoff – Eco-friendly homeowners should know that rain barrels minimize the amount of stormwater runoff that carries pollutants into waterways.
