Introduction: Raised Water Tank

Today we will raise a water tank with our friends pallets.

It's very simple, few tools and 1 pallet.

Strong, rustic and effective structure for free.

when it's free it's better. ^^

Step 1: Materials

Few materials :

  • 1 pallet
  • nails come from pallet
  • hammer
  • saw
  • Water tank

Step 2: Build

Really easy :

  • Disassemble the pallet
  • For the bed cut 5 boards 100*10 cm and 5 boards 70*10 cm
  • For the leg 6 boards 10*10*30 cm
  • Now assemble the bed as the photos, 5 boards attached in 3 different points.
  • Add 6 feet with the nails as shown in pictures. For greater stability, the feet are connected together with a board.

Step 3: Verification

As you can see, the whole is strong enough to withstand a full water tank.
Good ways to facilitate the access and use of water tank, all for nothing, thank you pallets.

And don't forget when it's free it's better.

You did good with the front to back bracing, you may want to add at least one left to right, if bumped from the side, the tank and contents may pivot away like a parallelogram. Such a brace will lock the legs together.

Indeed, the addition of boards on the sides will further solidify the whole. thank you
