Desired rainwater catchment system, available now, half-price, through Groupon.

We’ve been dithering for some time over how to incorporate into a small lot what have been up to now bulky rainwater collection systems.
The size, the modularity, the ease of fitting into the slim, unused spaces against the garage, everything about this system speaks to us.
My plan, once the 150 gallons of rain water is used up sometime in summer, is to fill maybe just one of the tanks for disaster water supplies.
(In Southern California, we’re talking earthquakes.) Use that water on the garden in fall before the winter rains, refill with winter rain, then repeat the usage cycle.

    how funny. i have a similar rainwater collection system at the moment–two large red plastic buckets that i already had. if the water in them now doesn’t evaporate by the time we need water again, well, i guess that’s a help. seriously, will definitely check out the groupon deal. ironically, i’m posting on a garden/groupon theme as we speak! (half price just speaks to me!)
