When we moved, we noticed that the water had a yellow tinge to it, not to be too blunt, but it looked like urine.
I started by deciding on the location for the system, excavated until I found the pipe, and left it.
I carefully dismantled the BBQ, and then rebuilt it around the exposed pipe, on a prepared concrete base.
I had just enough blocks, to cut the last and put another half block on top of what you can see here, then I cemented the old concrete top in place.
While doing all this, I was making inquiries with various Companies to see if I could get a system delivered. Again the problem here, is that Couriers will not deliver to most rural properties, unless you have an asphalt road access, which we don't, and that you have a recognised number for your property, which we don't. Fortunately our friend Omar, who lives in town, agreed to let us (me) use his address. In time the Water Filter System arrived, and another delivery from Homecenter arrived with all the plumbing fittings I was going to need, after which I was able to get on with the installation, I went for the 20" Big Blue system, so the filters, although more expensive, should not need changing so often.
I also installed a bypass pipe, just in case there is a problem with the system, we won't be without water.
I have encountered a slight problem with my design, in that we use our water to water all the trees during the dry months of the year, I don't want to use the filters for this, otherwise I would have to change the already expensive filters far more regularly, and if I used the by-pass, I would be lining the pipes with soil again.
