Water line repair work
Once I got it going this morning I jumped on the quad runner and rode up to our water tanks to see what needed to be done to get the water inlet pipe hooked back up to the tank as I’d accidentally pulled it off a couple days ago so we weren’t getting any water into the tanks from the springs. The main spring is up the hill about a thousand feet or so above the water tanks. The water free falls and is not a pressure system so there’s not much pressure in the water line.
I thought I better turn the water off so the top of the tank wouldn’t be too wet while repairing it.
Making a support wire
Once I had that done I went on home and found my brother Tom as he was going to bring up a ladder and help me repair the tank.
Tom said his back was killing him so he bought his helper Steve up to do the job. Sometimes you just need some young blood to get the job done.
Test for leaks
Water flowed into the tanks with no leaks so that was all successfully done.
Those guys took off for home to work in Tom’s gardens and I went up to where I was working on a trail at the last road crossing I need to do.
I think I got the trail in good enough shape to move the pipe onto it but not today as it got dark around five with the time change so I went on home after a good work out.
With it getting dark so early all the chickens were already on the roost. I put them away for the night and went on in the house.
Good to get the tank’s water line repaired.
