The first of 3 water tanks are in place! What a Job.. these tanks are REALLY heavy empty.. just wait till they are full!
Well they are in the building. This is just the start of things. I figured out a plan, and got all the parts, will it work? Who knows, no one has ever done this that I could find. Never thought I would use this much chemistry knowledge.
Sediment tank not yet in place, we need the platform to put the trusses in.. then we can place the tank and get the water where it needs to be!
Need a bigger vehicle..
Nothing like using a small vehicle to pull a large load.
Trusses going up! We did not like working 16 ft in the air.. Not fun!
Well, with the trusses anyway.. This was a bit of a challenge without any equipment, but when you gotta make ends meet, you work harder than you want.
There is a lot to do on the water system at this point, need to hoist the tank to the platform 8ft off the ground, hook up all the main water lines and start the big tanks filling, hopefully they hold water.. otherwise its gonna get wet quick.
The tanks are not drilled for this, so we cut into the 1.5 in thick tanks to hook in water lines that will fill the tanks. You can see the real scale of these 5,000 gallon tanks in this picture.
You can see here how the water gets to the sediment tank.. 3 pipes for water (go into sediment tank to fill holding tanks), 2 for waste/straight to overflow pipe. When the tanks are full, excess water just goes out the overflow.
From the back of the building, you can really see how the pipes go, still have to support these pipes, but at least they are connected!
