This is the set-up we have here...the barrels were from olives, the rain water goes into the one and then the sump pump pumps it into the rest until they are full. DH just put some mosquito netting over the top and screwed it down with the lid. He then hooked them at the bottom with one spigot to use with a hose. It is very slow draining, though, so are thinking of using the water pump I have for the water bed...course that might be too fast, we have not tried it yet.

Wanted to add that we got the idea from a fellow Texan who posted pictures of his set-up...
