rainwater harvesting system-maintenance, good football weekend

today is mantenance day for the rainwater harvesting system
we use here       we use rainwater as our only source of water 
please do a rain dance for us as we need rain around here

here is a picture of our filtering system

you can do a google search for rainwater on  google search
on the right side of this blog to read about the system we have

the rain falls on roof then goes through a roof filter then goes to
a sleeve filter to rainwater tanks     from there the water goes
through the 4 filtering systems above

once a month remove the white filter housing and clean it
well as below       a new filter is then placed   this is a
10 micron filter     it catches most stuff that may be in the

twice a year have to remove the blue  filter housing  and clean
out the blue housings       remove one at a time      wash each
with soap and water, irrigate it well, then sterilize it with a
cholorox-water solution      then irrigate it again, then put in a
new filter

the first blue filter is a white woven 5 micron filter
the second blue filter is a carbon filter that is a 2-5 micron filter
it catches any odors or chemicals in the water

the last blue filter houses the ultraviolet light     this  is replaced
every 12 months     it goes inside a quartz tube(broke
that sucker once-it was expensive and shut down my system
until could get a new one ordered)
this sterilizes the water

last thing do is put a chlorox solution in the the blue housing
with the ultraviolet light        the water is turned on and when the
solution reaches the faucets in the house the water is turned
off     let it sit for four hours      this sterilizes the whole

this is how we get our pristine water      great for drinking,
bathing, and cooking-and making coffee!!!

well razorback fans yall going to miss that quarterback
next year      know the pros are drooling over him
they almost did not make it

good thing that the auburn quarterbacks dad didnt get that
money from the miss state alumni or he may have beaten the
razorbacks in that close game

next week lsu  (texas fans can you say texas am game)
this is what this game is like

longhorns won and looked good doing it
they looked like the longhorns we were expecting
this year     of course the competition wasnt good

next thursday is the am and texas game
records dont matter    
a win would be good then
there wont be a loosing season

just give the ball to that big guy johnson and let him
pound the ball

go cowboys today       beat the lions
would be a good morale booster
jason garrett may be the answer(solution)
