    Looking for gear to set up

    Hi guys after a lot of reading I have made the decision to set up my own back yard bio set up with the help of a friend that has been doing it for many years
    looking to set up to process 200l at a time for ease of storage so I will be interested in all materials to set up from scratch
    located the shoalhaven nsw south coast

    See if you can get hold of a 'Solar Edwards', solar hot water system tank. They are made of Stainless Steel and have an electric element in one end.
    I have one which I made into a biodiesel processor. Search for my post on this., I will have a look after my meeting tonight, so if you find it first, post here so I don't do the same thing again.
