Makin' it Rain, For Real.

As a fellow gardener menitoned the other day, the old saw is that it takes 10 inches of 'pipe water' to provide plants the energy to grow they get from just an inch or rainwater.  Any gardener who has hosed for weeks to find their plants suddenly thriving after a summer shower knows.  But this year has been a war of extremes--the old farmers were right about another thing:  we sure were missing all that spring rain come July.  Besides the benefits of ionization and  nutrients rainwater provides, finding ways to divert and store rainwater in spring is not just a garden perk.  Creative graywater systems can be integrated with standard home plumbing.  The book Dam Nation: Dispatches from the Water Underground gives great advice on several ideas, including simple ways to let the water draining from your bathroom sink fill your toilet tank.

Possibly overall the most wide applied and popular plastics pipe for water supply lines, lawn sprinklers and irrigation aims is PE (Polyethylene) pipe, which is flexible and useable in several grades.
