    Sprayer shed

    Looking to construct a filling area with bio bed etc. it would make sence to cover the area and use a bio filter system rather than bio bed. If covering the filling area with roof might as well close in sides and insulate therefore building a purpose built sprayer and chemical store, a luxury possibly but justifiable. Anyone gone along these lines and designed something?

    Do you have a suitable shed that you could add a bay or two too. My Mate added an extra bay (when building) to a new potato/ grain shed for the sprayer.

    What have you measured? My Bateman comes in around 3.5m high, 3 IBC containers for bio filter measure 3.3m stacked so allowing gap between each and collection tank at bottom will exceed 4m.

    Re: Sprayer shed

    There's some interesting stuff here about rainwater harvesting, video on advice for plumbers/installers is also interesting.


    http://www.kingspanwater.com/commercial/agricultural.htm


    the link to the Environment Agency has some examples and on page ten there is a formula to predict how much rain you can get from a shed roof.

    Been thinking about a similar shed myself I was thinking about a lean to on a grain store, wonder if it would make the ultimate indoor wash bay

    Some water companies are supposed to be offering grants, so the man from SEPA said.
