Cementing fun

Thanks for sharing



Reed Bed goes here!

Only a quick report from the ‘dig site’ today.

Great progress has been made, the foundations have been poured, well ‘barrowed’ actually as they could not get the cement lorry close enough.It was all hands on deck getting the cement in as quickly as possible. After this was done it was time to cement our shiny sewerage unit in with another three tons of cement to make sure it can not ‘float’ out of the ground. To avoid the weight of the cement distorting the container we needed to half fill it with water and with no outside tap this might have been a problem but one of the pumps that I use to use to empty the swimming pool came in very handy as Ross lowered it into the stream and that provided all the water we needed 🙂

The extra ‘mountain’ of rocks you see has appeared is because of the large hole that now needed to be dug for our reed bed that further purifies the effluent.

Tomorrow it is time to dig the trenches for the new drains.

Such fun!
