Guide To Recycling Your Rainwater By Building A Pump Driven Irrigation System

March 11, 2008 at 10:27 am 2 comments

This is a 3.5 minute guide to building a pumping system for irrigating your garden by recycling rain water. All you need is an underground tank, a bucket, a drill, a circular electric fan (the people in the video picked it up for $5 second hand), a cone shaped water pump (also very cheap in swap shops), and a punctured garden hose for the irrigation system.

You attach the restyled fan funnels under your roof gutters to catch the water, leading to an underground reservoir. When it’s the dry season, the pump driven irrigation system waters your garden!
