Internal Reservoir and Pump
Internal reservoirs that collect rainwater from the roof and guttering, keep the water warmer which reduces the risk of thermal shock. With an increasing awareness of water conservation, reservoirs are the perfect way to harvest your rainwater without large external water butts.
Locating the reservoir under the bench protects the collected water from exposure to sunlight, thus helping reduce algae build up. Rainwater is also soft, and as many plants are adverse to liming, this can be a major advantage in hard water areas.
The Alitex reservoir is made of robust construction and is discreetly sunk half in to the ground and half above, beneath the bench. It has a capacity of holding 80 gallons of water, supplied with a simple manual pump, which enables retraction of water into your watering can and an overflow pipe leading outside the glasshouse.
