Collecting rain water. We were required to also leave the end caps off the gutters.

Some have the Mikvah. The pool has to be filled with rain water that isnt allowed to touch metal. I used to have to install a pvc gutter with all plastic piping to fill it. Think I have a pic somewhere

I found out about those after almost falling into an empty one when I could not find a light switch in a basement. I had to build a cover for it since the new owners were not Jewish.
