    Found an old single chamber septic on my property that is now on sewer so I've had some thoughts about converting it into a cistern for yard use. Found this presentation video about it too (its a little painful to watch) thought I would pass it along.

    Thanks of the info! I have on old plastic septic tank down below on my property and my well doesn't produce enough to water my pasture.
