ferro-cement tank.

Built in 2010 up the hill with many hands at a weekend festival. It holds around 40,000L from a bore pump working on solar and gravity feeds into the house and irrigation in the garden.

A slab was put down with help from our neighbour Robbie and his dad the week before. On the following weekend a frame of reo mesh with chicken wire was put up and concrete mix pushed into the mesh and smoothed over to create a wall about 5cm thick. We’ve never had a leak or a crack.

The overflow runs down a pipe into the dam.
