We wrote about this topic all the way back in 2014. We think it bears a repeat for the many folks who are recently learning that rainwater collection is a viable option in the Seattle area and want or need to opt out of using city water.
Do you know that you can collect 624 gallons of water from 1 inch of rain with only 1,000 sq ft of roof area?
That’s water that you can use for irrigation, toilet flushing, laundry, or even whole house potable (drinking) use. That’s right! 624 gallons. If you have a 1,500 square foot roof area in the Seattle area, this equates to 33,642 gallons of available water. Water that you don’t need to pay for.
