Up until this post, all of my blog entries have been about security systems. I am not intending to start a new trend, but when you stumble across something as special as this, I think that it needs to be shared. That is just one of the wonderful things about the internet.
My wife and I stopped in at one of our client’s businesses that we had the pleasure of installing a security system at called San Diego Drums and Totes located at 6420 Federal Blvd. Ste C, Lemon Grove, CA 91945. These folks carry storage containers of all sorts, but the exciting thing that I am sharing is a Rain Barrel kit that you hook up to the drainage spout of your rain gutter to collect and reuse the water to irrigate your yard. The kit includes a 58 gallon barrel, and the parts that you need to either connect to your downspout, or to another barrel. The total price is $75, and the state of California is offering a $75 rebate, so the net cost of this is just the sales tax. The barrel and kit are free, and there is no limit to the number of barrels that you can get a rebate on, so you can hook them up to all of your downspouts, and connect barrels to catch more than 58 gallons per rain fall. The kit includes a valve that you install at the bottom of the barrel to hook a garden hose up to to water your plants with.
The drought in California is at a critical level, and every little thing that we can do to help matters. This is a way to contribute to helping with the problem, and take advantage of getting something that would normally cost $75 for FREE! I like FREE, and I am guessing that you do too. Speaking of FREE, a basic security system is also FREE, so if you have not already done so, you should take advantage of that great deal as well!!
