That's kind of cool. I may try that. I don't think I'll pump it to the outside, but I'll try and catch the water in a bucket.

Reading the comments makes me wonder about catching rainwater. Thinking about the bird poop that's going into the water from the roof...that...kind of grosses me out.

I don't think your plants will care.
