Do they sink bores in Thailand - like for watering lawns and gardens etc ? Just wondering coz if you do/can, it'd be well worth it !
Correct on all counts + the slimline tanks are difficult to clean. Before one can save roof water, guttering is usually required. We have a future option of collecting water from a roof valley outflow with storage tank on rear balcony which saves install of guttering.obes;263051 said:A lot of those slimline tanks don't hold a lot of water.
If you've got the room either concrete or plastic 5000 gallon x 3 for a usual family sized home usually does the trick.
For sure put them (concrete tanks) under something - like a carport/garage/shed if you can, put diverters on the downpipes and it should be as clean as a whistle water.
Non-potable in Samui ? The opposite in Isaan.bacwaan;263073 said:still lots of those great big earthenware and cement pots by the sides of houses catching roof run off here...with a tap at the bottom what could be more simpler for watering lawns and non-potable usage
Internally have had a few hairline plaster cracks, nothing significant, externally the lower half around 2 sides has significant cracks, but only cosmetic, nothing structural, will post some pics when I get back home, currently in KoreaRivo;262983 said:Hey Dazza its been a bit over 12 months since you moved in, Im curious as to how the house is going, and wether any cracks have appeared in the walls etc ?...........................How does the place cope in the heat, did you end up going having to put more insulation in the roof space ?
Do you need to use air conditioning much ?
