To make a rain barrel do I just hook a barrel up to my gutters?

    Disconnecting your downspout and having runoff from the house flow in to a rain barrel is one way of collecting rain water. You can set up a rain barrel anywhere that rain will fall, however–if you live in a wet climate you might even want more than one.

    Here is a link to a video from the San Francisco Public Utilities Division on how to properly install a rain water harvesting drum for easy and long term reuse. There is also a power point presentation available on the second link.
