One of our main concerns during the dry weather is having enough water for construction, drinking, washing, and cooking for our homes. Our solution at the moment is an in-ground pipe connected to a solar pump. The pump is able to run off of a solar panel so it works only during the day. Just about anything that could go wrong, did go wrong. However, with a little creativity and dogged determination by visitors Roger England and Mike Lander got the pump to work. You can see Mike drilling holes into a Gatorade can to make a filter for the pump.
