That's really a good idea. I've been using water barrels to collect rain water to water my garden for years. I hooked a hose up to the bottom and use the gravity to relocate the water to where I need it. Unfortunately, Texas has had some bad drought weather the past few summers, so it's been empty more than full the past two years.

Also, in a grid-down situation, you could drink the water after boiling or using a home-made water filter like the one at or you could add chlorine.

Thanks for the informative site. Keep up the good work.
