Containing rainwater


I'm looking for materials/ideas to store rainwater in plastic drums. My idea was to use the contained water for the lawn and plant watering when needed. I was thinking using a 50psi. pump attached via. quick connect to 3-50 gal. plastic drums placed under my deck.

Any ideas?

You can actually buys these, not pressurized though, although you can modify them. Are you considering only things that are near free?

Containing rainwater


Hey, thanks for the link! I got some good ideas from that site.

I wasn't looking to pressurize the tank itself, but use a small 110v. pump that I could use to run a sprinkler. Between the outlet on the tank and the inlet on the pump I would install a quick connect coupling. Then the pump wouldn't be out in the elements.
