Life goes on – 10 April 2021
It’s that time again, and this time we can adjust all our newly installed adjustable solar racks.
It has taken a while but we are very pleased with them and the increase in efficiency is already paying off.
Water has always been an issue here.
Partly due to the steepness of our property(No flat land for tanks), and partly due to the intermittent nature of rain on the western side of the coastal ranges.
Lately the stored power in our Solar Batteries has not been performing well.
The power stored for overnight use had not been good since we got here, but lately had become an issue as we would come very close to running out of power overnight.
The house here at Arborlon has a somewhat primitive grey water system. Water from the bathroom sink, kitchen sink, and shower drains to a grey water reservoir just outside the house in our back yard. it is a small-ish concrete tank set in the ground. It has a submersible dirty water pump that runs intermittently, and the outlet is just a grey water pipe extended down the hill below the house.
