We did. Coming from Singapore, even as a child, I have had Save Water Campaigns drummed into me (pun intended) continuously as we, on that tiny island, did not have our own water supply & depended on Malaysia for water catchment. So, when my “other half” decided to build a water catchment system, I was delighted.
We got 2 drums from our friend and after much measuring, planning, seeking a location, my “other half” decided it was doable and work began… followed by test after test … which was weather dependent.
And when it finally worked, I even recorded the whole process on a short video to show his parents. Now, they are Australians and Downunder, water-tanks are so common (as seen in many of Geoff Lawton’s videos), but in Florida it’s a different ball game.
Hurricane hazards have to be borne in mind. But build it we did.
Then, we decided to make it a little more subtle instead of having 2 loud blue drums sticking out glaringly. We built a “cabinet” around it.
And from a distance, it looks more subtle, peaceful, environmentally conducive.
