    Sieved some dirty stuff with an old bed base for the magazine library's water tank.




    [​IMG]

    Tank was supposed to arrive on a Monday, but was delayed a day and I had other commitments, so I wasn't there. Eventually arrived at 20.45 and the girls who were home got it positioned. I plumbed it up, and found the outlet valve they fitted leaking, so sorted that, added a couple of extra outlet valves with camlock fittings and covered it with an old steel esky.




    [​IMG]

    Hooked up an overflow and connected it into the main stormwater system that feeds our big tank. Can't waste any.
