@stxdreaming1 my is NOT illegal in Florida, however it is advised to check the laws of the county, because there may be restrictions on how you can use the "harvested" water...for example, only as a gray water system. One article I read says:


For example, one Oregon resident was sentenced to 30 days in jail and paid a $1,500 fine after collecting rain water on his land. You can read the full story here .

There are several states where rain collection is restricted or illegal. It’s totally illegal, for example, in Oregon and Utah.

Some states require a permit before you can collect rain water. Laws are also changing in some states, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a thorny legal issue for some homeowners."

There are no rainwater harvesting restrictions in Florida, and it is highly encouraged by the state. Several local municipalities encourage rainwater harvesting with tax incentives and rebate programs.

It saddens me to see all the rainwater just pouring off the rooftops up here in my location in FL. 

As a side note, my sister and brother in law have these solar tubes in their bathrooms.

Every time I visit their home and walk by the bathroom, I'm looking to turn the light switch off to save electricity.

I should have said amazingly normal compared to the Keys, which is where I live.  Masks, distancing, etc


I lived in marathon and felt the vibe there was much more laid back and friendly. It might have changed by now. But I loved it.

@speee1dy Marathon is still a laid-back, open and friendly place.  I love it here.

@jahdrivesarustyferrari Thank you, sir, for the reply. What you described about "positive people" and "concerning yourself if only things that pertain to you", is my mantra. We're very happy people and keep to oursleves....when we're not meeting new friends at the local hang out or dive boat! 🙂 Always good to hear from a local!
