Borehole update

The borehole pump has now been connected to a starter switch in the pantry, which in turn is wired back to a new circuit on the distribution board.  It is now operational for manual use ... but given the weather in June we needn't have rushed!

The pictures below were taken on the day the drillers returned to complete their part of the work ,,,

... with a digger to create manholes for the wellhead and flowmeter.

Attaching the pump to the downpipe.

A close-up of the pump and its cable.

Tying on the cable.

Lowering it down the hole ... with some rope to haul it back up if necessary!

The manhole with the flow meter and the outlet for connecting a hose.

Nothing yet!

Success with a generator to power the pump.

The cable buried in sand to connect up to power in the pavilion.
