washed off the darling river mud, but it made the water a little cloudy :D

but you get that for a free tank!, came from mildura had duck weed and some small fish in it for about a year!, Tank was made by global rota molders, this one was a reject as could be seen from some of the first pic's had some repairs made!

Why Not contact the local manufacture of the pipe in OZ and see if you can get What they Call Reject pipe.. Not suitable for Plumbing and in most case is Regrind[Chipped] to be recycled..

The pump is really nice it's currently feeding both tanks quite well, with a little room to spare! it should run the whole system, if i get it right! :D
