Hi folks! Well, I just heard that they are changing the Raleigh water restrictions based on the ongoing drought. We could water one day a week. Once the newest regulations take effect, there will be NO outside watering allowed. Right now, Raleigh is going to run out of water in mid-January (that's worst-case scenario, if it doesn't rain again.) It's really getting quite scary. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for conserving water? Me, I have four plastic trash barrels, two under each downspout. When it rains, I go outside, and as the one directly under the spout fills up, I ferry the water into the other barrel with a bucket. That way, I can up to four full trash barrels of water. I use the water to fill my birdbath and water my crops. I keep a bucket under the condensation pipe for the AC unit. It collects about a bucket a day, depending on how low I have the AC set. When the bucket fills, I slide a new bucket under the spout and dump the old one into one of the trash barrels. I have two bricks in my toilet tank, so that it uses less water to flush. In addition, I only flush about every 4 times the toilet is used. When I take a bath, I leave the water in the tub, and then use a bucket to pour it into the toilet, to make it flush. Tonight I emptied the bathtub into my washing machine, so it would use less water to fill up. Does anyone else have any ideas?
