    Hi, I'm going to be using my garage for something else so I've decided to put my ibc in a shed in the garden.

    From measurements it should fit (hopefully!) and then I was just going to mount the filters etc on the wall of the shed.

    But one thing I'd not thought of is frost, am I going to have problems with the filters/pump etc? The shed door does have a bit of a gap in it at the top....

    You must have a big shed door to get an 1000 litre ibc tank through it?

    6x4 shed but it has double doors that open out, that pretty much cover the side of the shed...

    I think that might be an option, I just didn't want to lose any space in there or the IBC won't fit!

    Is it a thin metal or wooden shed?

    If you think kingspan is going to reduce the space too much you could try a thin insulation alternative

    You should do what I do When things freeze up! Stay in bed until 10am, then get up and have a mug of tea and head out at 10.30am! Frost free and no stress
