Below Ground Ferrocement Rainwater Tank — 4 Comments

  1. An FC vault would be good, with a moveable formwork, like the cardboard formwork we saw a few weeks ago.

    If the span wasn’t too great (16ft or less), you could do Latex Concret with a PVC frame, like a “hoophouse” for gardening. PVC frame, then billboard tarp for form, shadecloth for mesh, and paint a few layers of latex/concrete. Done. It’s not the cheapest option, but would be comparable with FC, and a lot faster.

    • Good idea about vaulted ferrocement cisterns. This design would be very practical. I haven’t found any pictures yet.
