thxs geo
that adds new meaning to getting ears lowered >;-x-
wasn't so long ago that the local rural barber was horse doctor, tooth puller & general surgeon- or so Griffy's ggmaw relayed to me b4 passing @102 in 2002.
Some pics of inet cafe. Wify's Pa enclosed A ends. Guess it was her b'dy present- i refused to pay as they wanted to not reuse my shipping crates.
It would look ''unbalanced'' was reason of refusal on my offer.
Middle horiontal beam is left over steel from build, my additn as they did not want using. I explain would make better lighting.
Yellow conduit is elct, blue is data. Specifically requested a thai std wire job on inside with exposed wire.
Guess wify is pullin abt 2k tb/wk. I have offered to count the take but was rebuffed on that offer. We came to arrangement for her to pay inet bill of 650tb/mo & i cover e bill.

pump in ok. Today redid discharge pipe as y'dy over torqued a fitting that cracked to a fairly good leak. That was the big job today. Will replace power feed socket tomorrow that is on fritz. No big rush as tit retirement time clock.
Mr. Gato,

9:30 am 16C
elect socket on fritz was bad connection by pump guys- hint screw electriucal connections should always be as tight to right as possible w/o stripping threads.

household water demand - 1child+2adults
our average water demand for past 382 days was ...
Uh er... Drumroll please Mr. producer-
r u redi 4 this? Ok
467liter / day or 0.08gpm
umm
so 0.5 to 0.8gpm well with storage tank should suffice most homes with lots o reserve, 10x demand
'
i am bit surprised as rot is 100gpd/person we are 1/3 the average, even with my baths, wify big wash machine, and moderate use by lawn watering + inet cafe people for 1st floor toilet .
'
massive sized pumps seem 2b waste of $€£
'
cavit:
when wify do wash we easily down a 1k liter tank for that day. I kno as have well pump die sundry reeasons and sto tk run dry maybe 3 or 4 x n past yr.
'
filters:
backwash sand filter 1x/mo
cartridge filter no more than 5 n past yr perhaps norm ave would be 3 per year for our water- mostly shallow well-
o-k?
