Reuse Old TV Satellite Dishes

Postby StarWish624 » Sat Jun 30, 2012 2:49 am

A while back, satellite dishes used to be really, really big. They were several feet across. I read that some people got an old dish, and buried them (shallow) in the ground to use as the foundation in making a small pond in their yard. The dish was covered with the waterholding fabric. The dish worked well, and can be removed, and taken with you if you move, or sell the house. And, you may even get the dish for free for just removing it.

What a super idea for repurposing! My nephew claims that he makes $$ off selling the center section of these on Ebay... :)

Cover with foil (or pieces of mirror) and make a really intense solar furnace.
