I hope you will, back where I am from people would fill up large water containers and let them sit for a day before watering the plants, apparently it gets the water the same temperature as the ground and allows to evaporate the chemicals, not sure if either is true though.
I've emptied mine 10 times already this summer, that's 20 buts worth already. I don't use the tap as it's pumped. Will break even next year I'd imagine. There is something satisfying about using free water. I even pressure washed all our patios, paths and driveway in spring using the water stored in them. Only issue being they have both been empty a week and no sign of rain for a while. Anyway, they will be there for years and years to come so I'll easily get my money's worth.
Not including the; rain water is better for plants argument, I do understand this What is the co2 foot print of the huge butt, made somewhere in china or locally? Transported on huge lorry to the distribution centre Then transported to your home For the same amount of money you can buy 6246 litres of water from the tap How long before you break even on this? How long will the plastic butt and its tap last?
Water from your tap: A) costs money if you're on a meter B) full of chemicals, not great for plants C) has a co2 footprint D) not always in the required location E) not everyone has one nor has a source to add one in their garden. So you thought your smart arse comment was funny, it was actually just short sighted.
Ive plumbed the entire house my dear
