Rain Water Hog - preserving water ...









I am SO excited about this new item and telling EVERYONE around me! I am looking into it for my own tiny remodel as well ... hummm, how many can I fit, how many can I afford? People often joke that it never rains in LA, well .... when it rains it pours! And when you take into account the surface of even the smallest roof .... think of all that accumulated water being reclaimed - which can be used to water your terrace, garden, refilling the pool, or used for laundry, toilets, etc ... the limit is only set by your imagination and your wallet!

Rainwater hog is the clever idea of Aussie architect, designer and 70's aficionado Sally Dominguez. Rainwater Hog sprung out of a need to reclaim rainwater - a mandatory law in Australia. It had to be practical, discreet, pleasing to the eye, and manufactured in ways that were at the same time solid, long lasting, easily installable, and Eco-friendly (not just in its use of it but in the materials chosen i.e. recycled plastic). This little [multi-award winning] gem of an idea is just at the beginning of it's journey: I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes the one item every homeowner has ... in the same way we have trash and recycled bins, a water hose, and a tooth brush ...

Below are just a few of the ways they can be positioned, but you'll be amazed at how creative some homeowners have been ...
