Water Conservation

Why not build your own rain barrels to conserve water? Its' not rocket science and for all those DIYers who have no idea of where to start lets now begin. I'm talking about, rain water harvesting simply a barrel or any large container that can be assembled for the sole purpose of collecting and redistributing rain water.

Typically rain barrels are attached to one of your gutters or down pipes, which essentially widens the water collection area to the size of your roof. A properly installed rain barrel can collect up to 55 gallons of run-off with just a few inches of precipitation which you can then use to water your lawn and garden plants.

Fifty-five gallons is a lot of water, and can really add up over the course of a long, hot summer. The water you collect in your rain water barrel is also free of chlorine, fluoride, and any other chemicals that might be present in your local water system, which is something your garden and plants, will appreciate.

The process of assembling your own rain water harvesting system is quite easy, and very good for the environment. What's that you say? You don't even know where to begin when it comes to making a rain barrel?! Well, you're in luck, over the coming week’s that's exactly what I am going to cover in a published article on this website.

Most home today has an access panel or trap door which leads into the attic space. Are you accessing this area safely, or are you like lots of others homeowners still using a dangerous step ladder.

The safe solution to this situation is to install a folding attic ladder. The average folding attic ladder will fit where the distance between floor and ceiling is approximately 8 foot to 10 feet in height. However not all folding ladders are constructed equally some may have different weight bearing capacities. If you decide to install a folding attic ladder, be absolutely sure to follow the instructions supplied by the manufacturer.

Book the hiring of your skip from a skip hire company giving them a date and time you would like your skip delivered and the size of skip you require.
