I'm on rainwater too, although in NZ so a bit more of a temparate climate.

We have @ 38,000l storage and we once made three months on that (family of four), was about to ring for the tanker and it pi**ed down for a day which filled them up and lasted another 10 weeks. Mind you that's being careful/paranoid about water use...like "if its yellow let it mellow, if its brown flush it down", no baths, short showers, minimal use of washing machine bla bla.

My recent Plan B is a small swimming pool which has a capacity of about 12,000 litres. Last summer I pumped that back into the tanks when we ran low.

Its amazing how you watch how much water you use when supply isn't a guaranteed thing.

Around where I live most places have 2 x 25,000 litre tanks, a couple have 3.

If your neighbours don't listen to The Ramones, turn it up real loud so they can.
