Small Water Catchers are superior to Large Water Catchers.
Large Water Catchers require 5x the wood, 4x the metal, and 2x the tarps but only provide around 2.5x the water. Not to mention that they're ugly and incredibly difficult to place.
You can fit up to 5 Small Water Catchers on a square foundation square or 3 Small Water Catchers on a triangle foundation.
If you have multiple water catchers at the same elevation, you can connect one's output to another's input using the Hose Tool. This will group all of the water into one catcher without the need of Fluid Combiner although you will be limited to 20mL/sec output. This only becomes an issue if your water catchers are full or if you have 20+ of them daisy-chained together. No water will be wasted unless _all_ of the connected water catchers are full.

Very useful to keep inside of your compound or outside of your base. Can be used to transfer or collect water from a Water Jug, Small Water Bottle or Water Bucket.

Small Water Catchers collect around 2.8mL per minute or around 170mL per hour. At that rate, it takes around 60 hours to fill up the catcher's 10,000mL storage.
Unfortunately, this isn't a viable method of providing steady water for indoor plants. Hemp typically requires 4-6mL per minute, so you'd need around 18 Small Water Catchers to keep a Large Planter Box hydrated.
