Day 258

Here it is.  Our new 3400lt rain water tank.  We purchased this with the money we received for winning the Sustainable Gardens competition last Sunday.  Its going to help us be even more sustainable and will be used to catch rain water to top up the AP system.  It gives us the capacity to basically store enough water to fill the entire AP tanks once over.  

It will be great in summer which is when the most evaporation occurs in the AP system.  So now we just need a bit of rainfall in the next couple of months to fill it up.  Here's hoping we can get it full.  


  1. I hope the rain comes for you mate! Bring it on!

  2. Has it rained on your side of town yet?

  3. That's a pretty big tank! Ample water can make your garden healthier, and your water tank can help you a lot with that. You can also use rain water to clean your toilet, your floors, and even your lovely car. =)
