Water Turned on to the Pond


2/9/2020 – Justice Williamson completed the 1-1/4″ PVC pipe from the pump to the pond. Water began flowing at 11:15 AM.

With the ball valve fully open the water only trickled in the house. With it at 50% we the pressure in the house is ok.

We timed how long it took to fill a 5-gallon bucket. Based on that rate it is flowing at about 20 GPM. Later in the afternoon, I timed the filling of the bucket again and it again took about 15 seconds.

After 49 hours, the pond depth has increased just a hair under 5″.
