this dam services the chook houses and the orchard using 1 -1/2 inch polypipe inserted by a ripper feed on the tractor beware of poly risers as the pulling of the hose can snap them off and don't forget to have some stop valves for such occasions just over the wall of the dam is the first stop valve and another just above the first outlet just in case of pipe blow out or some shmuck ploughing /ripping/contouring over the pipe etc
hardly ever leave the farm- don't want to- the internet saves me a million road, air and sea miles, provides at least 25 extra lifetimes, connects to friends who can stay on the subject, and gives me access to the brightest people conscious...... http://www.gardenfarm.biz
We have gravity feed from our spring. Down to the old farm house we get a lot of pressure. Enough that I tried putting in a polytank for storage and turned a tube into a ball. Pretty wild. Then the fittings blew out! I want to do microhydro. We have a lot of water and head.
