Does anyone have any experience installing water tanks or cisterns for rainwater collection and using the water for a garden (gravity-fed or pumped)?
There’s a 60’ by 30’ shed near my garden that would catch 2300 gallons of water in a 2-inch rain. I figure one of those 2500 gallon tanks daisy-chained to a 500 gallon tank would be enough to handle even the biggest storms.
I’d want to raise the tanks a few feet off the ground so I can gravity-feed them to the garden. A 2500 gallon tank can be around 7.5’ across. What would be the safest type of platform to hold it 3-4 feet off the ground? Some kind of metal scaffolding on a gravel base or just cinderblocks? The surface is slightly sloped ground under some pine trees.
