Regular blog readers will know that there are all sorts of exciting things we experience living in a rural area. One of which is having a rural water supply.
What this means is we collect the rain from the roof, fill the tank and then pump it back into the house via a fancy filtering system. Very ecco you may say and yes it is. However the success of this system relies on two key things – rain and a working pump.
Yes you’ve guessed it. We’ve had neither recently!
First it didn’t rain for weeks and weeks so that the water supply dropped to worrying levels. How embarressing would that be to have visitors and no water? So what do you do when the ritual rain dance of Kaitoke failed?
You get a man to deliver silly……yes, the lovely Colin and his shiny truck brought 10,000 litres of water to save the day in time for Christmas.
