If however you're in the country, and tank/well water is scarce, you can
circulate it from a tank. If doing this though, you need a fair amount of
water in the circuit - probably like 400L. I had problems when doing it out
of a 200L supply as the water heated up too much over time. Some people get
around this by freezing a couple of 2L PET bottles full of water, and using
these to help cool the supply. If running off tank water, it can be as
simple as just making sure you return the water to the main house tank.

> a separate tank with its own pump?well if it was me i'd use a seperate pump and resorvoir. the aquarium
pumps called "powerheads" or just a plain submersible pond pump would
be good and cheap. as for my pump i have on order a 1/2 h.p. cast
pump from www.harborfreight.com . it has 1" pipe threads and is rated
at 330 gallons per hour and runs off 115v. total cost after shipping
was like $33 U.S.. i'm planning to use the same pump for a RIMS
and hoping it can handle 170 degrees plus. good luck on your prodject.
