Introducing the Dipping Tank: rainwater collection for sustainable gardening

If you're looking at ways to make your garden and your gardening methods more sustainable, the Dipping Tank is a versatile alternative to the traditional water butt. While it fulfils the basic function of storing rainwater, it has many more uses than that, making it an indispensable addition to any garden.

How does it work?

The tank naturally fills up with rainwater. You can position the tank near a gutter downpipe and attach a diverter for seamless rainwater collection via the rainwater diverter kit. Alternatively, direct water from your greenhouse or potting shed gutter straight into the tank.

Then all you need to do is dip in your watering can, filling it up nice and quickly. You can then water all your plants, including your indoor plant friends.

So what are the benefits of using a dipping tank?

Sustainable, natural water source

Keep your garden and house plants hydrated year-round with rainwater collected in the Dipping Tank. You can fill your watering can in record time by simply dipping it into the tank, eliminating the hassle of holding it under a tap.

Rainwater is also better for your plans than what comes out the tap, as rainwater is more natural and contains more nutrition for your vegetation.

You can also make use of capillary action with accessories designed for watering house plants and seed trays efficiently. Using a Dipping Tank reduces your reliance on tap water, saving you money over time, which is especially helpful if you are on a water meter.

Wildlife attraction

Using a Dipping Tank, you can create a raised pond, which can provide a tranquil home for fish or other aquatic life like frogs and toads, pond insects and aquatic plants. This is a great way to invite more biodiversity into your garden, creating a thriving ecosystem.
