Has anyone constructed a cistern from ferrocement and a rebar armature? Like Art Ludwig's Water Storage book. I need to catch and store a fair amount of rain water and it seems to me that a site made ferrocement cistern is a lot of work; but do-able. I'm working on infrastructure projects on my property and thought I get to a prototype cistern this fall. I wanted to check in and see what big errors I can avoid.... Wouldn't we all rather make new mistakes? And, it seems to me that pneumatic hog ring pliers would make the armature work a lot easier but I have no experience with them. Am I thinking about that the right way?
Greg, ive done a 200l and a 7000l ferro cement water tanks and even though it can Be cheaper than other techniques, it takes a lot of time for one person to do it. Its something to Be build in group activities, that way i strongly recomend it but if not its better to buy something from an existing company.
