Water tank

I bought an IBC tote recently for water storage at the cabin. The tote had been used to deliver sunflower seed oil, so the first task was to clean the tank.

Getting the tank into the basement by myself was an interesting task. The tank is only 90 pounds empty but due to the size, it is awkward to move. I used some 2 bys to get the tank out of the truck.

My hand truck was used to move the tank into position and more 2 bys to hold the tank while I tied it off to my rope and pulleys.

Once in position, I removed the boards and lowered the tank down with the rope. The tank will live against the rear cellar wall.
