Rain. A natural aspect is used if it has fallen upon the earth. The desire increases for people to collect rainwater and use it resulting in rainwater conservation. The harvest of rainwater is used in various aspects such as irrigation, household and consequently reduces water bills as well as fighting water crisis.

With the whole wide water supply decreasing, people have been environmentally friendly regarding rainwater. They would use it for watering cans, swimming pools, irrigation landscapes, and others. There are different systems used by people to collect rainwater. For instance, rain barrels, tanks, buckets, and watering cans. Thus, this reduced the bills people must pay on each tap of water as well as flood.

Furthermore, rainwater harvesting is a strategy by which rainwater is gathered and kept for future use as it globally reduces the water crisis and provides excellent merits for the community. However, the harvested rainwater wasn’t previously used for drinking right away. People had to first boil it before drinking and use it for cooking. This took tiring procedures for drinking water, and some ignored the fact that it is not clean for drinking and took consequences of drinking it directly.

Consequently, people were affected by diseases resulting from drinking rainwater (unclean water). Mostly, people in rural areas faced this kind of problem as they have limited choices and prefer consuming it straight away. Specifically, children were the most affected by cholera, dysentery, and other disease resulting from unclean rainwater. Therefore, this was among the major problems of consuming rainwater for drinking purposes.

Thanks to them, I knew I can comfortably drink rainwater from home with just a tap. Neither the electricity nor the gas and time consumption of boiling water is needed, rather, a hit on the valve.
