Rainwater catchment systems for domestic supply, John Gould and Erik Nissen-Petersen

Two seconds of thumbing through this book were enough to tell me it’s comprehensive, practical and way more detailed than I need. I’m concerned with water on the allotment and want to rebuild my sheds and include some water management system, preferably more than a water butt although that may well be fit for purpose!

The book was published in 1999 by Intermediate Technology Publishers, who have since turned into Practical Action Publishing. It’s a reference book, a book of tank construction procedures, best practice ideas, case studies etc. Are few diagrams are of use on the allotment scale in a temperate climate, and will prove invaluable when I’m designing a new shed + water management system.
