This e-book manual describes how to make the containers or storage jars that have a capacity of 200 -250 litres (about 55 gallons), using only a 1/2 bag of cement and 50 kg of sand.
The jar/container is made without steel or wire mesh. A sack filled with sand is used as a mould which is then plastered with a sand/cement mortar. When the mortar is hard, the sack and the sand are removed, leaving the container.
The process is simple, easy to learn and uses the minimum of materials and equipment. You can make smaller containers if you wish, using the same process.
