That looks great, well done. With the introduction of water meters in Dublin, I could see this type of system becoming more popular. Am looking forward to seeing the finished project.

quote="ponddigger"]hi brennan.jm.the tank must be up off the ground ,about 3 feet then when you connected the garden hose it will work by gravity flow yours ponddigger[/quote]

Hi Ponddigger, thanks for the reply. . I am wondering about when the tank fills is there a way to stop the intake of water. I know there is a system when using water butts that stops the water when the butt is full. however these butts do not hold enough for a large garden. Can the tank you used be set up like the water butts and if so can you give info on how.

hi, just you let you know that my diy rain waterharvesting system worked over the cold spell.the tank in the ground did not freeze,so i was able to pump water from the tank in ground,to my tank in the attic.which was a great help when the mains froze for 8 days. yours ponddigger
