Installing Hydrants

Here are some photos of installation of a hydrant and pump system.  The system is set up in a "T" shape, with the common leg going to the fresh water supply in the basement.  This system serves three purposes.  First, to provide water in all weather to the sugarhouse.  Second, is to provide a pump line from the parking area next to the road to the sugarhouse for sap.  Third, as a sap pump line into the house for a future Reverse Osmosis machine.

As the same time, we did some addition trenching for electric lines.  It was quite a long day trenching, with another day of pipe installation and backfilling.
