The first phase of the Rain Water Harvesting Roof is officially operational as of this past week. We still have to run the hose and assemble the pump system to bring the water up from the 55 gallon drum on the ground to the 275 gallon poly tank on the roof for long term storage (Phase Two).
I had hoped to catch last weeks rain but it was not to be. However, tonight it poured from about 5PM till 9PM. We were able to harvest somewhere between 20-30 gallons! Not too shaby for the first harvest here at the "Moisture Farm!"
My Father and I also elevated the second Container onto block and leveled her last week. Meanwhile Jen has been helping me paint the main Container and I dug out a new stone camp fire ring!
