Got another .3 inches of rain last night along with a really nasty electrical storm. Lightning was hitting all around here and some sounded REALLY close. The inverter cut out twice when close lightning hit and I sure didn't know it would do that unless maybe it was a direct hit. Both times the inverter reset its self and the power came back on with in a few seconds. At least this time there was no high wind or hail.
I should have gotten about 60 gallons out of that .3 inches, but I doubt I got much at all because of the below.
I know the thought of this is probably gross to some, but that fine screen does at least keep the water inside pretty clean. Of course some people actually drink their rain catchment, but I don't. I add bleach to it occasionally, but just use that water for showers, washing dishes, flushing the toilet and stuff like that. I buy my drinking water separate from hauled or catchment water. I have heard of people finding lizards, mice and lots of bugs floating around in their tanks. I'll just have to keep the screen clean!
Bring On The Batteries...! - Probably everyone I know has a few in a drawer somewhere, more than likely for flashlights and electronics...maybe for a hearing aid or watch. Bis you ever...
