It’s not a secret that physics and technology are not exactly my ‘thing’. Maybe that’s why Jacob and I are such a great match. I get all excited talking about transcriptions and verb tenses, while he’s the happiest when he can calculate the average intake of water per hour.
But here I am, at a water technology seminar. And I must say, I am enjoying it. First I learned how to calculate how much liter you can get in a water tank, based on the fall of the water, times the volume, times 0,6 which is the efficiency of the pump.
I also know how to make your own slow sand filter, which means the expensive EuroGuard filter is really unnecessary.
If you build a water tank, the lid and sides should be 1 part cement and 3 parts sand, but the foundation should be 1 part cement, 2 parts sand and 3 parts gravel.
And I could go on about septic tanks and hydro power projects as well, but I think it’s time I go and start building that water tank now.
Here’s photo proof.
