Rain Water System - Collection Pipes

Star This describes the large network of pipes I use to get the water to the collection tank.


Pipes to collect water

These are the pipes, one that takes water from the foundation and one that takes water from the gutters and decking.  Whenever you bury pipes in the ground it is worth taking lots of pictures so you can remember where you put them.

It is good to include a filter box inline with the gutter water.  You can use a small catch basin and fit a rigid filter mat inside.
