Can't quite call myself a plumber....
But if I'd have known what shape my incoming water lines were in I wouldn't have bought 6 faulty bee boxes. NOT that it would have paid the plumbers estimate of $2200 to change my pipes.. (pier and beam house).
For $100 in parts... and with the help of my great helper, I have water again. Running, and not running out soaking the ground and the bottom of my house.
Stuck in Texas. Learning Permaculture in drought, flood and strange weather. The bees are still alive.
