Storing Water

Gardening is thirsty business, and not just for gardeners, but for gardens too! In the interests of water conservation and ecological awareness, as well as just being good for the garden, it's a good idea to store and reuse the water that falls in plentiful quantities from the Irish sky above.

The issue is compounded by increasing periods of drought and hot weather, with water shortages being declared in many areas around the country each year. A large sized water butt can be filled from a roof collection system fairly quickly.

There are all shapes and sizes of water storage options available, up to a hundred thousand litres and beyond, although this is of course a little on the large size for the average garden! Usually a few hundred litres of capacity is plenty for a normal household. These can then be connected to hoses, garages and greenhouses with ease.

This is what's known as “grey water”, untreated natural rain, as opposed to white water (treated from the tap) and black water (untreated sewerage style water unsuitable for anything). It's especially good for plants and vegetables since they're already receiving the exact same water from the sky every day, with the same composition and temperature.

There are a wide number of accessories which can be installed alongside your water storage to turn it into a useful gardening tool, such as solar timers, irrigation pipes, pumps and more, which will function automatically, leading to a completely standalone system while you enjoy a cup of tea.

Enjoy your garden!
