Platform
The Sediment tank needs to be elevated (gravity thing) so that the water can go into it first, then after it drops the sediment that water carries, water gets distributed to the other tanks. Well thats the intent at this point.

The first of 3 water tanks are in place!  What a Job.. these tanks are REALLY heavy empty.. just wait till they are full!

3 Tanks in...

3 Tanks in…

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.

Water flowing, the spring is flowing thru the tank house at this point, straight thru the drain line.  I have the water lines closed off at the spring at this point.

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..

Trusses going up!  We did not like working 16 ft in the air..  Not fun!

Almost done

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.

Water work

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.

Water hookup

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.

Under roof!

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!
