There is tremendous peace of mind in knowing that you have many gallons of water stored and accessible on your site in the case of an emergency. While collected rainwater is not potable without treatment, in an emergency it can be disinfected with a variety of home-scale water purification techniques. Check out the Real Goods Store for the latest offerings in water treatment for personal consumption.
And BlueBarrel can meet your emergency water storage needs! It’s a little known fact that our unique system design includes provisions for emergency water storage. Our flagship product offering, the BlueBarrel Rainwater Catchment System™ is specifically designed to let you hold water in some barrels (should you ever need it in case of emergency), while fully draining others for irrigation.
