Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know We live in the countryside. As the locals would say, We live in the “wop wops“. Far, far away from any city amenities, such as water. We rely upon a combination of tank and bore water for our water needs. A 30,000l tank supplies the house with water for everything expect the toilets and outside taps, which come from the bore. The bore also supplies the household needs of two of our neighbours, as well as a number of stock troughs. Over the last week it was apparent that there was a problem with bore water supply. So it was D.I.Y Daddy to the rescue.
Firstly, the suspected leak had to be located. Our property has been in existence for over 150 years and there are pipes all over the place. No-one alive knows what pipe goes where, which makes life rather difficult.
There it was lurking behind the old water tower.
After two days of digging and two visits to the local plumbing and drainage shop, and a quick crash course in do it yourself plumbing, daddy managed to fix the leak, reattached the pipes to the correct connection and Volia it was all done!!
Me and Nellie having a look see at what is happening.
