The tanks run off a pump, so the water pressure at the hose is about the same as regular tap water. Also it's not purified so you can't drink it, it's only for washing cars and watering plants.


Hmmm. What sort of pump do you use? The water pressure at my house leaves a lot to be desired, I bet I could probably get more water pressure with a pump and just use an in-line water purifier if I was so inclined.

Sorry for going so OT, mate! :oops:

Run the house/shed/garage guttering to a tank. Put a spout at the bottom of the tank. Connect hose to spout, gravity does it's work and no need for a pump.

Also works a treat with gardens etc.

You can also get a grey water setup going... you divert the water from your laundry sink (ie washing machine) and shower.... NOT THE TOILET! to a tank. The tank lets the sediment fall (ie clothes fluff) to the bottom. You have a spout up a certain height off the bottom of the tank and again, perfect for gardens. You just have to make sure that you use a laundry soap that is green friendly. You don't want to use something like Acid to clean parts in your laundry trough! Some grey water systems have pumps or built in filters as well.

Best part is, with either rainwater from the roof or grey water, in summer you can water the garden or lawn and it keeps the plants green and your lawn green, so it stops stuff dying and the soil getting loose and blowing into your house and garage. WIN!


ps. You should go into business making dimple die brackets Kev!

more OT. We've got a 9k litre rainwater tank under the house, and we use it for everything. A few filters are set up to clean it, then it just runs through the normal plumbing. It's enough for a family of 4 to last near a month with no rain. When it does run out, we've got a valve set up so that you can just turn on the town supply.

Or you could try this online bookstore in Japan:

(no one seems to have the G-Works book though)

Easiest way is to go to www.photobucket.com and upload pictures there (it's free). After uploading, copy the image tag below the pic (the bit that starts with [img]) and paste it into your post and we should all see the picture :D

It was great to see your can on Saturday. I didn't get a chance to come say hi because you were almost always chatting to other people, but I managed to get a good look and some photos of your car. The level of commitment was on a level that I see very rarely. I also talked to some other people who were as impressed as I was.

I forgot to mention my thanks for saying such a nice thing :)

The Hako is also entered in Motorex next weekend, and I was pretty nervous that it isn't up to the standard of the cars at that show, so this does make me feel a bit better :D

whenever I looked over you usually had an audience of like, 4 people haha :)
Sure, it isn't the tidiest of cars, but anybody can tell that it's been cared for and driven, which is the best thing a car enthusiast can do: let their car be seen in public. It was surprising how there was always a crowd around your car, but not many people around the white one down the other end of the carpark.
