My home ac unite broke last year so I’ve been trying to find ways to keep cool in the summer heat because I can’t afford a new unite for $2,000. So here is a solution for under $20. Found another one like this except it used a styrofome cooler instead of a bucket.

A simple way to harvest natural rain water

I’ve been thinking about ways to lower the cost of my water bill but I can’t afford a company manufactured water tank and system. This is a pretty cheap and innovative solution to harvest natural rain water for any purpose that is practical for whatever your cause. However before using I would take a sample to your local environment office to see how safe it is after the filtration.
