Moving The Water Pump
December 2008

A few years ago we tried having our leaky pond sealed with a thin layer of Sodium Bentonite clay. Unfortunately, it did not work. In fact, the guys we hired to do the work accidentally made some parts of our pond leak worse. So our water pump was no longer able to reach the pond water and needed to be moved closer to the water. We pump pond water to a holding tank near The Outhouse so that we have water to flush the potty with. Thus, this was an important chore to get done :)
