Day 42

Rain glorious Rain!

Today we had 17.6mm of rain which filled our rain catchment tank twice.  Its a 240 litre wheelie bin designed specifically for the task.

Only this week I installed the pump and not too early as we were able to drain it once into the fish tank just before we received another down pour which filled it in about 5 minutes.  A total of just under 500 litres of water was added to the fish tank which is fantastic.

Our aim is to use only rain water to keep the tank full so in the future we may put in a large tank which would store water for the summer evaporation.
