Disconnect that garden hose from your faucet! We’ve found a much more eco-friendly alternative that harnesses the power of the sun and the gift of rain to store life-giving water  for your plants. RainPerfect  is a solar-powered pump system that collects seasonal rainwater in a barrel and then pumps it using a NiMH battery that’s charged by a 3.5 kW solar panel. With 15 feet of wire, the solar panel can soak up the sun on a nearby wall or fence or on the ground, and each charge has the potential to draw up to 100 gallons with a maximum pressure of 13 pounds per square inch.
