By now the whole world knows it rained in Southern California this weekend. In many parts of the state, it’s difficult to remember the last time it really rained. Such is the nature of our historic drought.
On Saturday, about 1” of rain fell on parts of San Diego. Doesn’t seem like much?
Water Recycling Systems’ customers with rainwater capture systems know that when 1” of rain falls, for every 1,000 square feet of roof/catchment area, they have renewed their tanks with about 623 gallons of water that can be used for irrigation and flushing toilets.
And since we know that the average person uses about 19 gallons of water to flush toilets per day, we know that this rainstorm provided a water-savvy family of four about 8 days of rainwater for their toilets.
Not bad for a rainy day!
With a reported El Nino season on the way, let Water Recycling Systems, LLC give you a quote for a rainwater capture system. Here’s the link to our website, www.reusegraywater.com.
