    RAIN CATCHMENT

    Skip to most recent Update CATCHING RAIN WATER 2017 The system we built to catch rain water on deck is quite simple and VERY effective. The rain would fall down on deck and the toe rails would guide that water down to the scupper drains and onto the tanks (like shown in the sketch) After […]
