With California facing dire water shortfalls after the driest year in recorded state history, Gov. Jerry Brown has called on residents of the Golden State to conserve water "in every way possible."

I figured that I could buy a couple of cheap rain barrels, stick them under the downspouts of our Oakland house and be done with it. We have one 60-gallon rain barrel already that we got a few years ago, when the city of Oakland had them available at a discount. But there's a lot more to learn about rain barrels than I first realized.

Filter Debris From Your Rain Tank

We proudly use Gutterglove Gutterguard as the First Stage Filter in all our rain harvesting systems because of it’s ability to filter out all leaves, pine needles and even sand from your gutter system and rain storage tanks. Visit their website for more information at www.Gutterglove.com

Rain Harvesting Systems installed Gutterglove Gutterguard on this 3,100 gallon rain collection system. You can clearly see from the fine stainless steel mesh on the photo that sand can't get through. Also, another benefit is that you will never have to clean out your gutters again.

Gutterglove filters out the sand from this two tank 3,100 gallon rain collection system. You can see Gutterglove on the gutter in the photo above in the lower right corner.

Tony and Robert place the 550 gallon rain tank on the redwood deck.
The small silver pipe is actually a flexible safety connector that can bend 90 degrees in any direction. This allows for quite a bit of movement to the tank if necessary.
Tony and I (Robert Lenney) named our garden "The Sustainable Garden". We incorporated a windmill, solar energy, sustainable plants, solar path lights and a 550 gallon rain collection system and even a couple bottles of sustainable wine from Parducci.
NBC Bay Area interviewed Jerry and got his comments on tape about his new rain collection system.
These tanks are big and awkward, but with enough help, they can be easily moved.
Concrete thrust blocks custom poured at each turn in the pipe.
You can see that the sand doesn't pass through Gutterglove's fine stainless steel mesh.
This is a 550 gallon rain tank that had to be raised because it was impossible to dig a level foundation because the supportive upper deck posts were in the way. So we raised the level instead by building a redwood deck platform so it's level with the other 550 gallon tank to the left.

What is
Rain Harvesting?

Have you ever thought about collecting the rainwater that runs off your roof? Rainwater is an easily obtained resource, and it is an excellent way to satisfy your watering needs. You can save on well water, energy, irrigation water and municipality water by storing up this precious, free liquid that comes from the clouds above.

In simple terms, “rain harvesting” means collecting rainwater. A popular and easy way to catch rain is by filtering the water through the gutters on your roof. Once the water travels through the gutter, it is directed into a holding tank, and can then be used for any water needs you have. In most cases, it is used for non-potable applications but can become potable (used for drinking) if proper filters are used.

A Rain Harvesting Systems representative can provide you with several options of how to start your rainwater collection.
