Rain water collection

Rain water collection

My goal for this growing season is to collect more rain water and use that instead of the town water. I've seen some types of barrels that attach to the downspouts of the gutters, but it seemed that the water could never be channeled back to the downspouts. If the barrel is full I'd like to go back to moving the water as far from my house as possible. Does anyone have a good design for this? I'd love to hear other people's experiences with collecting rain water or gray water.
