10,000 gallons cistern/ rainwater harvester for irrigation.
We recently had to replace a irrigation pump that had gone back and we found some leaves inside the pump so we decided to open up the manhole and clean out the gunk on the bottom of the tank that was installed in 2000. If you ever wanted the know what it's like to be inside the belly of a whale, step inside this 6 foot tall basement cistern. At roughly 8 feet wide by 25 long by 6 feet high, probably about the same size and just as creepy. Luckily no snakes or dead squirrels, just a few geckos.
