The cabin water makes its way to a 55 gallon blue storage tank via gravity from a spring-fed cistern at an average rate of 100 gallons/hour. The lopsided tank was insulated with a large piece of carpeting and covered by some fancy blue styrofoam.
With easier access under the structure during deck demolition, we took the opportunity to get tanked.
A quick trip to Tractor Supply for a 135 gallon leg tank I’d had my eye on for the past six months and I was ready to roll.
After some excavation, I set up a sturdy foundation for the tank to rest on. There is nearly one foot of gravel under each of the timber steps.
Everyone got dirty, even Toby then yellow lab!
The new tank has a rather ugly overflow pipe that will thankfully be hidden by the new deck. We are looking forward to building a water feature for the overflow to play on.
