I've always lived in rural areas so city life is a bit foreign to me. "Neighbors" have different meanings in different locations, I suppose. :)

Here's a thought. Use three buckets. Leave one bucket at the apartment. Bring two buckets half full of water back to the apartment. Filter the buckets through a t-shirt or something into the third bucket. The buckets would be about 25 pounds each and you'd have to make two trips up the stairs so it might not be such a good idea...but, you'd end up with 5+ gallons of rainwater! Of course, you might not want an extra climb up the stairs with an extra 25 pounds...but, think about the good cardio exercise it would be!!!! :roll: :lol:

That oddly reminds me of a grade school math problem.
