Spring House

I was going to post today about the excellent progress we’re making on doubling the size of the garden but I’ve been asked by several people to write a post about the spring house. All this work predates this blog which is why it’s not already written about.

First some pics:

These are the plants that indicated I had a year-round deep rock spring:

My masonry work I’m pretty proud of:

Where the lid I cast joins my masonry work:

From the front, (I haven’t finished the rock entryway yet):

The overflow/clean-out, I might someday build a rock cool house here for milk and butter:

The 48V DC positive displacement piston pump / pressure switch and surge tank:

A close up of the overflow/clean-out. In this picture, below the 4″ overflow the threaded clean-out can be seen. Also pictured is the garden hose length I use to suction up any silt, the DC fuses for the pump and light, the waterproof junction box, and the lightning arrestor .
