      I saw on television recently a segment on a rain water tank suitable for use in suburban settings which captured rain water from the guttering system and stored it in an unobtrusive plastic tank.The water stored was used for drinking in that story but I just want to water a garden with it.Does anyone have any information?

Darn if I can remember the term they use for this but I bet you could do some web searches and find info on it in Australia. I saw it and thought the concept was great for lawn/garden. Many over there think it is THE BEST drinking water.Try keywords: Cistern Australia Rain Water Tank but I cant recall the term they use, sorry.

      Have a look at our Web site- Devan.co.nz over 10,000 of these tanks are sold annually in New Zealand(pop. 3.5million), it is a very common source of storage if you dont live in the city you have to have a tank. Even in the city alot of people have plastic tanks, the rain water is definately better than other sources!

      I am looking for a cistern for my basement to replace a well. The cistern I am looking for is a collapsable poly bag. Do you know where I might find one? : : : : : : : : : I saw on television recently a segment on a rain water tank suitable for use in suburban settings which captured rain water from the guttering system and stored it in an unobtrusive plastic tank.: : : : : The water stored was used for drinking in that story but I just want to water a garden with it.: : : : : Does anyone have any information?: : : : 888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888: : : : This is VERY very common in Austraila on their ranches.

      Check with a local plumbing supply for polyethelene cisterns. Also you may be able to use a plastic (or concrete) clean septic tank.
