I’ve lived rurally my entire life and the house we’re in now is the first that’s ever had filters of any sort. Best thing is no more little bits of organic matter in my glass of water. But otherwise we’ve never gotten sick. My family holiday home water is straight out of a nearby bush creek.

If you soak mung in hot water for half an hour they seem to germinate very evenly. The same for chickpeas, adzuki and lentils which we sprout as a mix. Half an hour hot water then up to 12 hours cold soaking before going under an automatic sprinkler.

If the power is out how likely is it that the city water will be out too? This still requires a pump whether it be electric or gasoline in which case you’d be better off just hooking up a trash pump and pumping direct.
Depending on the application required a water ram could be what you’re after.

A ballcock valve in the bottom tier would do it.

I has a quick google but didn’t find anything useful.
You’re after a jiggler type fuel siphoning valve but with a floating ball.
Won’t the head pressure of the water just push the ball down anyway?
What’s the application?

They are impressive thorns. Still pigs aren’t stupid, are super tough and can heal from some pretty knarly wounds with no assistance. We’ve found numerous bullets that weren’t ours in wild pigs and you usually couldn’t tell from the outside. I’d see how it goes.

Have you seen it done before ? Cutting throats properly with a quick kill and little wastage of the meat is a skill and not for the faint of heart.
What exactly is it you’re trying to start?
I had my own business doing fencing and farm work and contracted myself out. I began with my two farm dogs and a few tools and as I made money I bought more tools and gear that would allow me to do more varied jobs.
I picked something that was in demand and easy to start at and I also already had the relevant skills.
People won’t invest unless you really know your business and target market well and you can really sell it to them. You need to get people excited if you expect them to part with their hard earned cash.

I am unsure how big these thorns are but in New Zealand wild pigs live in the gorse and blackberries. Gorse is grown as a fence in the UK and is an almost impenetrable barrier but pigs don’t even slow down.
