This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will install a cistern and pump house that is truly first class.  All components need to be winter capable for your area without using heat tape or other band-aids.

Here's a video for the cistern part, there's probably one out there for the pump house portion :)

Minimum requirements to get this BB:
  - cistern deep enough to not freeze
  - 500 gallon minimum capacity
  - freeze protected pump and piping

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the site before you start work
  - cistern hole dug
  - tank in place
  - piping under construction
  - piping done
  - pump house done
  - backfilled and finished
So it takes a day for light to pass through this glass? So this was yesterday's tiny ad?
