We planned to install the water purification plant in August, together with all the peripheral pipework required.
For a change, things went according to plan and, with some help from a friend, the plant was installed and commissioned on 9th August!!!!!
I’m not sure what I was expecting, but for a most impressive piece of reverse osmosis equipment, it’s remarkably simple to operate.
Soon afterwards, we had an excess of water – the irrigation furrow was allowed to run too high. It hasn’t been maintained over the years, so there were many leaks which resulted in our new orchards being flooded in several places. We’ll just hope the trees don’t suffer from having their roots submerged. The mud is ankle deep, with water flowing all the way down to the bottom dam, so there’s nothing we can do about it until the water levels drop.
