How much water will my roof produce?

Generally speaking each rainfall event that falls on a roof will likely produce far more volume than can be captured in a typical 55-gallon rain barrel (even a small amount of rain falling on a small roof will quickly fill a typical rain barrel). Most manufacturers provide ways to connect individual barrels in series to increase storage capacity. In addition, larger rain storage tanks are available for sale and can be considered based on your needs.
