We have a river running deep under our home!
It has been more than 6 months since my city has had decent rainfall. We have a third of our water supply left and each household should be getting by on less than 500lt a day! This is impossible for mine... we are a family of 7 including the staff.
It is now a familiar site to see these drilling machines parked outside almost every 2nd house in my area. I love my garden and the water from the borehole is sweet, almost drinkable except with a high percentage of calcium. We plan to convert most of our water usage inside to this "grey" system as well , so in the long run, we will be saving on consumption and the bonus, less
of our hard earned money will be going to the council!
Thank you Eddie, for a wonderful birthday present!!
As I look outside, the rain is starting to fall... Murphy's Law!
Blessed Easter Greetings!
