More rain please, I'm saving water....

Over the summer months I have a number of hanging baskets & mangers full of plants to make a splash of colour on my red brick house. Watering these with a watering can or hose is a pain, so a few years ago I installed a watering system from Hozelock. Its very neat & saves me a huge amount of time & it also saves on water compared to watering with a hose. With the clear danger of a hosepipe ban in the UK this summer, I have invested in a rainwater saving tank & pump to run the watering system from. With the recent rainfall, its 700 litre capacity should be filling up nicely from the downpipes from my house roof.
