Reap purposes in pictures


The current topic for the Weekly Photo Challenge is Repurpose and I have dredged a couple of topics out of older posts to show for it — because they fit, and because I can!

A mineral bottle with a bit of tinkering feeds rainwater to the portapool  In our drought conditions, it has been the only source of water for the pool for nearly a year now.

A mineral bottle with a bit of tinkering feeds rainwater to our big portapool   In our current ongoing drought conditions, rain has been the only source of water for the pool for nearly a year now, and I have even been able to feed a large swimming pool next door as well.  Note the highly technical clamp to hold the hose in place: two holes drilled in the edging, and strong wire bent into a ‘U’.

The water is of quite satisfactory quality!

Another bit of repurposing was taking broken roof tiles and using them (bad side down) to build up garden beds.

Another bit of repurposing consisted of taking broken roof tiles and using them (damaged side down) to build up garden beds.  Updates of this scene will follow when I finish some concreting.

Finally, a picture taken today. It shows a purr-puss on the left, and a re-purr-puss on the right.

    Your water diversion effort is really well-conceived and obviously effective. I’m impressed. Purr-puss and Re-purr-puss are adorable!
