In our efforts to conserve and learning to live a simple life, Eddie came up with a water conservation method – pretty easy to do.  You will need two big plastic containers, hoses, a few nuts and bolts, a mesh to filter out debris, and a faucet.  You will also need some pallets to keep the containers off the ground, that way you can turn on the faucet that is installed at the bottom of the container.  He made the design with two big plastic containers to collect rain water, but you can do only one.  With one, you will not need the hose.  The hose was just to transfer water into the second container when the first one is full.  The materials used here were all free.  We will take this to the farmhouse and enjoy the blessings of rain water. 

In this case a picture says it better so here it is.
