I catch the water from my dishes also, but my dishpan recently broke!! UGH I cannot find another one locally.
But I catch all the water _ i keep the food bits to a bare minimum, then I take it outside and dump it into a 5 gallon bucket. I take the bucket & empty it each day, pouring it on my trees around the property. I also have a well that has non potable water. I rigged up a pump & use that to also water stuff on the property, now that I'm using recycled or well water for most of my watering needs my water bill has almost been cut in half! VERY happy about that!!
I also have a table that my seedlings sit on, as I water the excess flows off the table in one spot, so I stuck a bucket there to catch it all. I put it back in my large container to use again for watering.
I also have two 55 gallon rain barrels, hoping to have more this next year.
would love to use a bucket to catch my shower water - you know all the water that is wasted while you're waiting for it to warm up. and use that to water, its good clean water, it's a shame it just goes down the drain. I'm sure my BF would think I'm nuts!!
