I bought a basic RainReserve system last week and I'm loving it. Rain water is rich with nitrogen, which is nutritious for plants. I use my collected rain water (which I get a lot because it rains a lot here) on my plants and they grow fantastically. It connects to your gutter downspout and goes off into 1 or two hoses to rain barrels. And even if the system starts to overflow, water (and other junk) goes out the downspout. I would highly recommend buying this system and rain barrels.
