Re: GBlist: Re: metal roofs for rainwater collection
Norbert: Compared to the system referred to below which uses the backyard
as the rain collector, we are using a significantly different system with
a few common components (slow sand filter). Our backyard instead, collects
rainwater for our square foot food producing gardens.
