Water conservation has become an important issue and many people are now installing rain water collection tanks to supplement or replace town water.

Bushman tanks are strong and sturdy, come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. They’re made of food grade polyethylene, which means it won’t taint the water.

The tank needs to be placed underneath a gutter runoff. A solid and level base is crucial. Monte builds decking from treated pine, so it will raise the tank high enough to place a bucket underneath. He treats the end of the pine with an end sealer.

Some special guttering needs to be placed. A transition piece is required to take the diversions from the rectangular guttering into the round. To fix the plastic piece to the metal, Monte uses Selleys Roof and Gutter Silicone Sealant for a nice tight seal. Running a bead along the external part of the join is also a good idea. Fix all the PVC joins using plumbers cement.

Bore out the hole for the tap. If you’re planning on using the tap for watering the garden, Bushman Tanks can recommend and supply a Marina pump. It will take the pressure up to mains pressure; it’s a plug in so you don’t have to get an electrician to wire it.
