Large Volume Water Storage


One of the items on our homestead to do list is a plan for Large Water Storage, that is….more than one or two months supply. If you are in an apartment of townhome, you will probably have to stick with water barrels. In the suburbs with even a small backyard, there is the possibility of more storage. Now most of us want the “storage” to look more like the landscape than a big ass plastic tank.

Neil has been a great source of information and has consulted with us on our Gardanimal area… Yep our name for the animal-Garden enclosure. We will be looking into this, possibly a 5000 gallon tank minimum for us. We will be calculating the per person needs, 2 gal/day and then the animals and garden as well. Could we get a year supply? Maybe.
