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.
