With thanks to our lovely Irish Water Explorers teams from Berrings NS and Convent Mercy of GNS, we finally have our jojo tank or water butt working like it should!!
We used the funds to fix the connecting pipes to the gutters and we bought a small pump to pump the water to our kitchen and bathroom, before we had to carry buckets of water from our other jojo tank 100m away. Once the tank was connected to the gutters we were delighted that we were blessed with much needed rain which filled the tank in just one rainfall event!!!
We also will be using our harvested rainwater to water our garden which we plan to plant in the next month.
