Saving water never looked so good!

Agua Rain Barrel

The 50 Gallon Agua Rain Barrel not only looks good, but also is a great way to conserve water in your own backyard.

GUELPH – There is an immediate need for water conservation because the world's available supply of fresh water is shrinking; one way to help conserve water is with the installation of a rain barrel.

Right now there are 600 million people in the world who are living with water-scarcity problems. According to Population Action International, by the year 2025 there will be between 2.7 billion and 3.2 billion people who are living in water-scarce or water-stressed conditions. One of the two main contributors to the water problem is global warming, which turns fertile land into arid deserts. The other contributor are man-made creations, which alter ground-water run-off patterns and introduce pollutants directly into the water table further decreasing the availability of freshwater.

Each North American consumes an average of 350 liters of water inside the home each day. That doesn’t include the water that is used outside the home. There are parts of the world that do not have any fresh water, yet in North America much of our valuable drinking water is wasted in our yard. We have to remember, however, that treated water does not provide any added benefit for plants. City watering restrictions are usually put into place for the warmer months of the year. Even with city restrictions, water usage often increases up to 50% in the warm weather, due to lawn and garden watering.

Green Tip:

Use a push mower. As push mowers are completely manually powered, using one of these will eliminate the gas or electricity you use when mowing your lawn.

One of the easiest things you can do to save water, while still watering your plants, is to install a rain barrel. A rain barrel hooks up to the downspout of your eavestrough to collect and store rain water until it is needed for your lawn and garden. Rain barrels help the environment, help to water your plants, and can help to accentuate your backyard decor.

The depicted Agua rain barrel is very elegantly designed, with smooth clay-like contours, and an elegant planter on its top. While designed to look like terracotta, these rain barrels are made of a thick, durable, lightweight plastic. They are guaranteed to withstand extreme temperatures without chipping, cracking, or fading. These rain barrels include standard features such as a corrosion-proof screen guard to keep mosquitoes out, and overflow valves to allow for multiple unit hookups.
