Currently four of the 1550 gal tanks are overflowing with all the recent rains. The fifth 1550 gal tank collecting off the carport (and not connected to the other tanks) has about 700-750 gallons. I understand that Austin's rainfall total for the month of March set a new record. (An example of extreme weather conditions imo.)
I decided not to quit the local city water service yet. Having access to the mains water is still a good back up, (while it's available.) I can currently afford the "standby" fee.
I wanted to bump this thread so newbies have a chance to browse through it.
How much can I collect?
A one-inch rain on 1000 square feet of collection surface will yield about 550 real world gallons of rainwater.
