|Rain water tank with gravity-feed watering system|
It was relatively simple to set up, though being a man, PK tends to over-engineer things a little, so the shelf is pretty much cyclone proof! PK especially liked cranking out the angle grinder to adapt the down pipe for our new tank- it was his first use!
To connect the dripper-pipe to the tank, we could have used the tap that is provided with the tank, but we thought it would be good to be able to use the tap separately for filling buckets or the watering can. So PK drilled an extra hole in the side of the tank and with some male/female bits of pipe, connected the poly tubing to that. Then all we had to do was wait for rain!
