    I diverted my rain gutter down into my 300 gallon water tank. In a half days worth of rain, it filled up half of it. So far, I'm impressed with it. Next step, feed water from the tank to a trough automatically.

    That's awesome! I have a huge poly tank just collecting dust in the barn, might have to do this!

    Very nice! How do you plan on keeping algae in check in the water?
