Harvesting rain water

Hi there.

In my previous house I harvested rain water from the roof via the gutters to a JoJo tank. however I have now moved into a house with a thatch roof and no gutters! I live in Kloof which has a high rainfall every year..

Does anyone know of a gutter system for thatch roofs or perhaps can suggest an alternative way?

Kindest regards,

Ian Jamieson

    Perhaps consider installing ground level cement gullies (below the drip point of your roof) which lead to an underground water storage tank?
