Hi,
what's everyone's take on using fibre cement (which has 10% asbestos!) as a container for a greywater recycling system?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Hello,

I wouldn't use it.
Depending on its condition, it may not seem problemetic now (although that's still up to debate), but with time it is bound to became damage and then it could become a real problem, especially when you'll have to get rid of it.

Is there some instructions here on building a fibre cement gray water tank?

First question is if you need a tank at all. In most cases the best policy is to just let the water go to the yard as generated.

I agree that a disintegrating asbestos tank down the road sounds like a headache.
