Was actually yesterday but without power since Friday, not as lucky as @Bill dog so still without power, well pump is electric so no water which meant trips down to the stream yesterday.
View attachment 1000320Need to fasttrack the IBC with PTO pump plan. Also in the market for a diesel generator now 😋
We upgraded to a borehole supply to the house and sheds 2 yrs ago, but I kept the old spring fed supply to the sheds as the main supply , with the borehole as backup.
Thank god we did it that way round, as the spring keeps running, so 1100 pigs still had their water !
Karting a few buckets into the house to flush the Bog is preferable to watering all those pigs!🥴👍


Does the IBC need to be set up high? Would a small vacuum tanker suit?
Small vacuum tanker would probably do it but cost for PTO pump and IBC are about £300 so hard to beat that with a vacuum tanker. Let me know if you know about one though as I like to be surprised.
