Q&A with MaPixie

Sheila Zachariae asked:
We too have a rain barrel to tend to the pots and gardens! Saves so much in our water bill and reusing at the same time!
MaPixie answered:
Loving it...landlord could not figure how we did not use as much water as he thought we would!
sandpiper58 asked:
where do I go for the instructions for these barrel water system .... looks like a good project for our garden watering
MaPixie answered:
My fiance created it using 4 bleach barrels from the local pool, and spouts and tubes from the store, so sorry there are no specific plans
