Once I got out to the shack site, I cleaned and sloped the outside perimeter of my footings. I went all around the footings. Two wheel barrows of dirt fill the hoe bucket. I dumped about 3 buckets. I want to get the water to stay away from my footings and drain to daylight, via a trench I am going to dig soon. I hauled two wheel barrows of concrete spillage down to the creek. I have a bad spot down there that likes to wash away.
I then pushed a steel pipe on an angle from inside the footing to the outside. This is how I made the hole to install my waterline conduit. I was'nt real sure how it was going to work out, but it all worked excellent, just like it was meant to be. It was a good push, and then it was a really hard pull trying to get it back out, but it did finally come out. After doing that a couple times my 1 1/2 inch conduit slid right in. I'm not sure, but I don't think this is how it is normally done.
Trenching the water line to the cistern location. There's the plastic conduit, the 1 inch water line will slide through that. It was starting to get dark by the time I shut it down. Did'nt get home till about 10. I worked up a pretty good sweat the first part of the day, then I needed a break by jumping on the hoe and doing some digging. Seems like a good way to split up the day.
