By noon today, the silicone sealant would have cured for more than 24 hours.

50% full of rain water ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
Filled it with the rain water collected yesterday and managed to fill up 50% of the capacity.

No Leaks ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
Check out my handy work and there is no leak. Turn the drum around so that the other hole is checked too to ease my my mind that it is OK too. yes it is OK and is keeping my fingers crossed because this is just initial.

6 hours later ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
6 hours later after my lunch, afternoon beauty sleep and weeding about in the mini farm, I was a bit nervous while keeping my fingers crossed as I approached the half filled tank. Hey it is as dry as a bone ..... I did it.

I am pleased .......

Hi KK,


Barrel support to assure that the large tank does not move? 200kg is a lot of weight.

Access holes for the smaller tanks? Support for the smaller tanks?

Positioning of each tank so that the plumbing can be laid out?

Just a few thoughts.

Hi Jerry, my mind seems to be on holiday, sat infront of the tank for 2 days wondering what is the best way to stop the barrel from moving should it decided to move. Was also slightly distracted with our brand new full HD 40 inches LCD TV.

Anyway thanks for the wake up call and I guess at the moment the best solution would be wedges. What do you think?
