Today was the day I decided I was going to get the creek crossing for our main water line hooked up. I thought it would take a couple hours, but I was wrong about that.
I got started on it just before noon after the sun warmed up the working spot a bit. I wheeled my tools and supplies over with a wheel barrel. First I had to tell my Aunt that her water would be off, then I got started.
The main pipe is a 2 inch PVC pipe with black foam insulation with a white plastic pipe to hold it all and keep the sun off it. All I had to do was hook up each end and make sure everything was insulated for the cold as I’d installed most of the pipe crossing earlier. But that took a lot longer than I though, all day. It was three PM when I crossed my fingers and turned the water back on to test out all the confections. Fortunately they all held as I applied water and brought the pressure up.
I could finish insulating now that I knew all the new joints were not leaking.
I spent a lot of time picking up my tools and scraps and the sun went behind the mountain way before I got it done. About five PM I was back home sitting in my chair resting away.
My back was hurting some and I was tired out, but it was nice to have that part of the job complete and ready for winter.
