Day 11 – Geothermal Collectors and Septic Tank!

14 Jul

Today the collectors for the geothermal system were layed. Once in, the tenches were backfilled. I had to leave early, so by now that part of the field should be restored. It was a race against time to fill the two trenches before the rain, which should arrive tomorrow.

The septic tank was dropped into its giant hole today too! I missed that so only saw it when it was in place and most of the hole was backfilled.

The lads also whacked the ground between the foundations to prepare if for sand. A radon barrier will be spread across this sand (sand prevents the barrier being damaged on the stone underneath, which was also the reason for whacking the life out of the ground!).

Yesterday was a bit wordy so I’ll keep today short!
