Nice. I'm planning to use the IBC containers because of cost and scalability at my house but the concern is water pressure. Is there a hand pump option that you can use at the hose end or do you need an electric pump?

Nice setup. @icanreachit , depends what you want to use it for, if you need pressure you can get a small 12v pump, we just use ours for gardens and animals and utilize gravity flow

Smart. I guess I'm trying to think of a standalone system so that my tenants don't have to touch anything (the less they know the better). But, I guess I could just tap it into one of their houses and drop $5 off the rent for the electricity.

could try one of these 12v inline with a pressure switch
