Greywater drain installation
carried in all the pipes, I got scared of doing the
plumbing and put off finishing our greywater
wetland for a couple
of weeks. Mark kindly gave me a hand cutting the existing drain
and installing the connectors, and then he helped me lift the world's
largest rock to expand the inlet
We tested the flow
before adding extra rocks, and then afterwards. It looks like
it's going to work, but we'll wait a few days before burying the pipes
to make sure we didn't forget anything important.
In the meantime, I got a
bee in my bonnet and decided to install a tiny pond liner Mark's mom
had given us years ago. I put it at the very end of the wetland,
raised up a couple of inches so that water won't flow in unless the
whole thing is well inundated. The pond has no real farming
significance and will probably just be home to a couple of goldfish and
maybe a lotus, just for fun.
Our chicken waterer is the easy way to keep backyard chickens happy and healthy.
