I haven't had any luck with my mini pond this year. Was hoping spawn white clouds and think if might be my crazy hard water.
If you use rainwater, how do you harvest it? I've got rain barrels but I'm worried about junk from my roof and what it'd do to fish. Maybe that's not a real concern though.
I have been using barrels from off the roof for years with no problems. I do put a strainer bag that is used for 5 gallon buckets for painting on the end of the downspout to help catch leaves, ect.
I have also been using it off the roof without problems. I have a tap into the side of the downspout that goes into the barrel.
Cool. I'll probably give it a shot then!
I'm set on my end. I've been using rainwater from barrels for my gardens for a few years now.
