That sounds pretty good to me!

Back when we were having this discussion, you posted a link (or several)
to photos of at least part of your setup - if the photos are still
there, would you please re-post?

The 84% reduction in your water bill has got to be satisfying. :-)

Jim what do you use to pump the water to the toilets?  I have a
rain water collectin system that I mostly use to water the garden.
During the rainy season (here in Portland, OR) I send most of what
I capture down the overflow.  So putting it to some good immiediate
use would be great.  Also, since our sewer rated are calculated
based on our winter water usege, I would save some money by not
using city water durring the rainy season.
