Rain Water Collection Tank

Rain Water Collection Tank

This is our rain water collection system. Right now, it's empty for winter, but in a few weeks will be connecting the pole barn gutters so that rain water will run into this tank. At the bottom is a valve, to which we connect our hoses, and a small pump, and we can water the garden from that. Alternatively, we can add fish emulsion fertilizer to the tank of water, and fertilize the whole garden using our hose. We purchased this old transport tank off of Craigslist- but not knowing what was transported in it originally, we had to clean it out very well, even though it appeared quite clean and had no residual odors of any kind.
