Keeping in the rain.
While the typical rain barrel system holds about 50 gallons of water, a standard-sized Rainwater Pillow holds 20 times more. As rain trickles through your gutters, it is filtered and emptied into the pillow, and can be used for everything from gardening to filling your pool. Kit includes pillow, filter, pump, remote control, and fittings. $2,500 - $4,200. rainwaterpillow.com
