Pollution is fast becoming a major problem in most countries today. More and more cities are suffering as wastes continue to contaminate not only the land but also the water supply, making it unavailable for many purposes such as drinking and washing. This has led people to look for other ways to acquire water from other sources. Now, they are turning back to using rain water. Rain water harvesting is the process of collecting rain and storing it into water barrels. These water barrels can usually hold up 50 to 80 gallons of water, depending on its size.
