Rainwater Transfer 16-5-12

Just a short report to say that I am pumping water tonight from the 23kl tank near the growers into the 27kl car park tank. I am sure I would get more efficiency from the pump if I used an 18mm or 25mm delivery hose but at this stage I am only using a 12mm hose and it is going quite slowly over such a long run.

I will get some pictures of the pump and hoses and insert later. When watering I have a tap timer also installed so that I don’t waste water but I don’t need it for a basic transfer. Photos will show the set up with both installations.

Transfer Pump used to transfer water between tanks around the property and also to water the garden when rainwater is needed.
