Filters with Sand


Today featured breakfast (with filter coffee) at our local surfing establishment near the beach, and then (after some tips from a friend on the wiring) a final completion of my sand filter installation. Neatening-up will follow later. Testing was interrupted by two hours of the hated ‘load shedding’ switch-off of electricity. At this rate, I am constantly going to need to reset my new timer. Should I have left it without one and just done the daily on-and-offs manually?  *sigh*

    If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
    If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
    If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
    If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

    So, I guess taxing the sunlight isn’t out of the question.

    I am (hopefully) going to investigate the possibility of installing a small solar panel for the pond pump.
    The initial outlay ( as with all such things ) is likely a bit steep but it will be one step to rid myself of the dependency of the F&%$#” municipality.l
