We recommend a level area slightly larger than the tank covered with 3 - 4 inches of crushed 3/4 inch drainage rock. Smaller rock can be added on top of the crushed rock for better appearance. Concrete slabs or pavers are also suitable, but not required.
All Bushman tanks are equipped with stainless steel 20x20 mesh on inlets and overflows to prevent mosquitoes and other pests from entering the tanks. (Remember to always keep the cover on your inlet strainer basket)
The Bushman First Flush Kit is a device that prevents most of the debris on the collection surface: leaves, twigs, dust, bird droppings etc. from entering the tank. This device is highly recommended if you plan to use your stored rainwater in an irrigation system.
