Correct - we have two water holes that are fed by garage-door water catchers.

An inch of rain on a 10'x10' surface yields 62-63 gallons of water. So with an inch of rain falling on the roughly 7'x9' garage door, we are catching about 39 gallons of water for the water hole....plus we are catching rain in the hole itself and the tarp connecting the door to the hole.
OAWC is online now
