Water tank

With Level 5 water restrictions just weeks away from being introduced (all watering of garden to be banned?), I have decided to install a water tank to collect rain water from the roof for gardening and car washing use.

The water tank has already been delivered but not yet installed. Photos will be posted in due course. In the mean time, I can only tell you that it is BIG!

To help you visualise its size, it is cylindrical in shape, with a diameter of 1.75 metres (just under 6 feet) and a height of 2.41 metres (just under 8 feet). It has a capacity of 4,730 litres, i.e. about 12,500 cans of soft drink.
