DIY Off Grid Rainwater System using an IBC Tote – Part 3 (Water Pump)

Born for your Drinking Healthy

Part 3: Setting up a 12 volt water pump to use on the IBC tote for rainwater. Very impressed with this pump! Can’t wait to install in a permanent setup and make an 18650 battery pack. Will also install solar as a power source for the setup! Thanks for watching!
