It rained. And they filled up.

It starting raining around 5:00pm on Wednesday afternoon. By 8:00pm, the newly installed water harvesting system was looking pretty darn effective!
In just 3 hours, we collected 2,000L of water.
Mighty impressive.

During our evening rain storm on Wednesday night, Trent Bauman points out that the tanks are almost half way full!

During a 30mm rainfall, we know we can collect about 2000L of water for the garden.

The tank system was designed and installed by the clever and dedicated folks at Merlyn Power who donated their time to install the eavestrough, downspouts and tank connection – so amazing!! Thanks Scott, John and Mike; it works, it really, really works.

And I couldn’t be more proud.
