New Water Tank

Our new water tank has just arrived – all I had to do was move it into position and plumb it in. The tank is on one of the highest parts of the farm, in an old fertiliser bin, used when the farm airstrip was still in use to crop dust the farm. It only weighs a couple of hundred kgs when empty so I used the bike to pull it into position.

We’ll pump water from the spring to this header tank then it can gravity feed the water troughs around the farm (and possibly the house too).

    [...] main water tank for the farm is out of view of the house so a visual water level gauge wouldn’t be much use. [...]
