    Dang it! It has to be pouring rain today, and I'm without a good container for it!

    I had actually decided to go out and buy a big Rubbermaid trashcan or something similiar today. But Fate loves being all ironic and mean to me! Oh well...it should rain the rest of the week, so maybe I've still got time to fill the thing up.

    Alright...I've got my stuff set up to collect some rain, so let it pour! Well, at least until my buckets are full...Californian's and freeway driving with the rain is scary.

    Question for everyone though. Once you have a container full of rainwater, how long can it be kept? It sounds a bit stupid...but if you keep a sealed lid on the thing, prevent bugs and junk from getting inside...its pretty much good forever, right? Or should it actually be dumped out after a period of time(even if its not looking icky)?

    as long as you dont have any debris in there that may have chemicals in it, it should last indefinitely. i know that if leaves get in it they will leach out their chemicals that could hurt your plants, but what makes rainwater good is the fact that it have very few disolved solids in it. i mean look at it this way: in the wild, all they get is rainwater! just to be on the safwe side, dump your bucket right before a good rain so that it's all fresh if you want.

    Well this is a good reminder for me to read the post im ansering to all the way to the end before i give a reply

    haha well tecnacly it should last awile, but the more a sunstance stays in the container, the more things the container will leach into the water (ecpecially with metal)
    But i dont think it would be a big problem.
    But thats just me


    Oh and scott i think i forgot to say
