Is it a Well? Is it a Spring?
A constant trickle of water runs across the water meadow above us and we aim to put this water source to good use year round in the HoBB Gardens. It once supplied the HoBB kitchen a very long time ago but since mains water was connected, the system has eroded.
A new concrete base has been laid only big enough to build a collection tank upon. From this point, the water that overflows will be diverted to a storage tank and will supply a drinking trough for the Black Sheep.
Most of the HoBB Gardens are below this holding tank level so by gravity we should be able to water the lot! After storage systems are in place, we'll work out the connecting piping and hope that as each winter arrives and we have drain down the entire system, none of the pipes retain water that freezes and opens any joints.
Can you detect an idea growing in my mind for a "Plumber's Creativity Weekend" ???? Interested water enthusiasts should make themselves known and contact us!
