Rain Water Collection System
I was looking on Kudzu for a Gutter specialist that dealt with rain water collection and went to their #1 person for my area They offered a very cool system with a pump so you have pressure behind the water you collect (for watering , etc,). Does anyone have a similar set up and how do you like it? do you use it often? Ive also heard that chlorine free water is better for your plants ... can anyone confirm this?

Hello and welcome Steve, to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.

I agree rain water is better for plants than chloranated water.

Chlorine free or water free from chemicals is definitely better for plants. I also collect water but by jut putting drums outside when it rains. :)

Chlorine is bad for plants. For that reason, it's not advised to use a water containing chlorine in watering plants. However, chlorine is a flatulence that can be completely removed out of water easily. Just let the water stay for 24 hours before watering the plants. Moreover, make sure to use a completely clean and empty bottles in holding the water while it let the air pass.
