What homesteader has extra time to spare? Not us for sure and most likely you don’t either! Today I am wrapping our fourth IBC with black plastic to keep the rays of the sun and algae out of our tanks.
Algae. The dreaded enemy of our IBC’s. Not only does it make the water disgusting, it takes plenty of time to drain and clean out an IBC. Consider wrapping it!
So far we have seen a difference in the clarity of our water supply from these covered totes. No GREEN! We’ve come a long way with our water storage and have learned plenty. Check out how we first started here!
Once of the best things we purchased was this little tiny water transfer pump. I kick myself because this is a recent purchase and it has made water transfer SO simple! Don’t waste your time, grab one right away, you AND your back will thank me for it!
So if you don’t want to see the dreaded algae, check out this video and see if wrapping an IBC is for you.
Do you harvest rain water? How do you store it?
