Space for IBC Tanks

Hola, today we made more space around our main water storage, to fit two new IBC tanks, buffering water from the village ram pump.

Two new tans are getting prepared with a protecting layer of black  acrylic paint, and a protecting screen made of cane, to shade out the sun since it would otherwise heat up our black tanks in the desert sun.

¡Hola! Hoy hemos hecho más espacio para dos depósitos para el agua que recogemos de la bomba de ariete.

¡Ya hemos retirado el depósito blanco y estamos esperando los dos negros!
