Over the past year, we've had a number of readers write in with questions on rainwater harvesting. One popular question is how to do it without an unsightly barrel. It's been a tough one to answer, until now.
That picture above is the incredibly versatile Rainwater HOG modular tank. The tank is designed to store rainwater in small spaces -- think under a deck, up against the side of a house, in a narrow passageway ... And the material is recyclable.
We definitely prefer the HOG to the traditional rainwater barrel -- traditionalists might disagree.
Allison Arieff, editor-at-large at Sunset magazine, blogged the HOG not too long ago. She called it "simple and discrete." We agree.
