How to make a cistern/ water catchment system


Some crafty clients of ours asked that we try to keep their bathtubs in tact as we demo’d the bathrooms for renovation.  Above you can see what the result was. All of the drains were tied together to kill filling the three tubs.  The overflow drain on the third tub was used for the same purpose on this system. A garden hose attachment was placed on the drain.  They get about 150-180 gallon of holding power.  Not bad.

    Hey fantastic blog! Does running a blog like this take a lot of work?

    I’ve virtually no expertise in computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if
    you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I just had to ask.

    Thanks a lot!
