Virtual Field Studies Class: How to Maintain and Prolong the Life of Your Rain Tank

Event Date:
Wednesday, December 2, 2020 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Event Address:
Virtual Classroom

Ensure the highest quality of water in your tank and prolong the life of your rain tank investment!

Join us for this new class to learn how to make your rainwater collection systems last. You'll learn:

  • best management practices for your plastic cisterns
  • design principles that can affect maintenance needs down the line
  • how to address maintenance issues as they arise such as mosquitos, leaks, and algal blooms 
  • why painting your tank is important
  • and more! 

Please note this class primarily focuses on care and maintenance of plastic tanks, not metal cisterns. However, some of the same principles may apply. This fully online presentation will have multiple opportunities for Q&A throughout and at the end.

This field studies class is offered for free thanks to grant funding from Arizona State Forestry Division.
