water Storage Containers
Last updated 2 years ago
"After a “first flush,” which prevents accumulated contaminants from entering your tank, the water is then diverted into the storage tank. This divereter valve can also be adjusted manually. A fine stainless steel screen is included in the system to keep things like grit, fir needles and even mosquitoes out, so your tank doesn’t become a mosquito breeder; and a rain head keeps leaves and other larger debris out."
Building Our Wooden Rainwater Cistern
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 -Building Our 3,000 Gallon Western Red Cedar Rainwater Cistern = Here in north Texas we experience frequent dry conditions in the summer. We built a rainwater collection cistern out of western red cedar and use the collected water for irrigating our trees and landscaping. The cistern holds 3000 gallons of water and is approximately 8 feet tall (not including roof height) and 8 feet in diameter.
