Nice work! I’ve enjoyed seeing the progress with your system. Are you concerned about erosion on the hillside (along road perhaps)? I’m not very familiar with the climate in your area.
No pressure pumps! Woohoo!
wish I could say the same. Nope. 3. Occasionally problematic. Sometimes a nightmare.
I bet you're happy with that! Congrats! That will last a long, long time.
ps, since you have power there, if you're concerned with freezing a valve, you could use a "heat tape" and some insulation to virtually eliminate that possibility. I agree with the ball valve vs gate valve frost resistance comment.
you may have no idea what I'm talking about, but it's a common application for heat tape.
yup, you could use some pipe insulation and heat tape, or a heated box to enclose all the valves and above ground pipes.
