Rain collection is not a dumb idea, but a bit impractical for most of California. For a usable amount for gardens, landscaping, and trying to save on water bills, you have to save a ridiculous amount of water to last the dry season.

If your just using for watering some potted plants, sure.

Storing the rain water for drinking, it's going to need some water treatment for long term storage for bacteria control.
