Water Tanks

Rollin Rollin Rollin 

We had 2 x 5000 litre water tanks delivered from tank world, they were $750 each.
They sat in the paddock for a couple of months until we dug one of the pads, we are on a slight slope so needed a relative level spot for the tank.
It was a night mare the ground was so wet and muddy. 

We opted for putting them straight on the ground, we were going to add sand to the bottom but just didn't get around to it.
We did add an old carpet to the bottom, then just rolled the tank over to it, too easy.

All the plumbing was either already here or we had brought back from Sydney.
Now all the wonderful rain we have been getting is slowly fill up our tank.
When its full we will pump it up to the other tank further up the hill and that will in turn go to feed the Cook House.
At the moment we have been pumping the water up to the shower cube as we have not added the gutter to the shower house yet.

When i get some time i will be adding a stone wall at the top of the slop with some drainage pipe, i would hate to have our tank slide down the hill over winter when its so wet.
