6600 Litres of Rainwater

watering-791312_640One last thing for our planning application preparations is to decide on the location of our rainwater tank.

When I first read the list of local regulations and saw that we have to have a rainwater tank, I had a 250-litre plastic water butt in mind. Wrong!

What we are going to have is a 6600-litre concrete tank, buried in the back garden. This will collect rainwater from both sides of the roof, and there will be a pump inside so that we can connect a hose to it for watering the garden.

The plants will be happy with that!
