Rainwater storage tank: video update

Here's a short video to show the status of a masonry water storage tank prototype I've been working on.  The tank was made from manufactured concrete block which I designed and had produced on a standard concrete block machine.   This will serve as a "plunging tank" to cool off after taking the sauna.  The same idea will be used to collect potable drinking water.

To see the tank completed, please look here.


  1. How's your sauna right now especially your concrete rainwater tank? It's great that you made one because rainwater is naturally refreshing compared to the water coming from the faucet. I hope it's already completed, and your tank has been filled with fresh and cool water.

  2. Thanks for sharing this video. it was very important in installing rainwater tank system, you need to work well for the design and elevation of every tank and pipes.

  4. Hello! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about masonry in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about masonry. Keep it up! This is a good read. You have such an interesting and informative page.
    The strength of a masonry wall is not entirely dependent on the bond between the building material and the mortar; the friction between the interlocking blocks of masonry is often strong enough to provide a great deal of strength on its own. The blocks sometimes have grooves or other surface features added to enhance this interlocking, and some dry set masonry structures forgo mortar altogether.
