Catch Rain for Spraying

Last year, there were issues with the effectiveness of my herbicides. I discovered, after a process of elimination, the problem was the water source. So I ran gutter downspouts off both sides of my 50×60-foot pole barn to a 6,000-gallon aluminum bulk tank. What a surprise to see how much water accumulated from just ½ inch of rain! A catch basin filters out most pine needles, leaves, etc.
