Thanks kilgoretrout! Don't look too closely, perfect is a stretch, but I like your encouragement, a lot. That is in USD... We have solar now so the bill is currently just an interconnect fee. I am more than curious how much the tank affects the overall consumption. I know it will be significant as I will have to have one of the AC's running fairly continuously.Like all have said, the mounting is impressive. You were able to route that fitting out so perfectly.
Also, your power bill is insane. Is that in USD? I work in a big building and the power is around that for 17k square feet.
Thanks so much Susan! And, thanks for stopping by and all the likes! The canopy was a no-brainer for me. I just don't care for the open top look with lights mounted high. The glare back into the room is just too distracting for me. To each their own though. I would prefer to have an in-wall build but that won't be happening as all the walls are concrete. We all live in typhoon bunkers here.Wow, what a build! You must be thrilled to be getting back into it. Love all your customizations. Not sure if I'll add a canopy to mine. Might be hard as lights are on brackets. Yours is awesome. Hubby could most likely figure something out if we want one. Looking forward to seeing you all set with water and livestock. 12 years was a long wait! Will be following.
That is a really good question. Right now it is essentially 95% done. What is left is to is to bring it out of the garage and into the house. In order to do that I have to run a circuit. I will run the circuit off the exterior outlets by tapping into an outlet. This will be the dedicated circuit for the tank as we rarely use the exterior outlets. There is no proper way to run a circuit off the main distribution panel as the house is 100% concrete. This will require coring to run the conduit through the exterior wall to the interior. No easy task. Next, I have to set up the RO/DI from the exterior as well. I will likely be able to just run the line from the RO/DI unit through the wall with a masonry bit. It is 8" of concrete. Once that is completed I will be good to go. One caveat, I am leaving for a trip at the end of April and will be gone for 18 days during the initial period of running the tank and no one to check in on things. I'm reticent to set her up before I leave but still within the realm of possibilities. So you have a crappy boss too?Nice progress on your system.
I can totally relate on the too much work comment!!!
How much longer until your tank has water? I cant wait to see it.
I worked for a really crazy boss for 8 years until he was forced to retire 3 years ago. They still haven’t replaced him yet so I am pretty much in charge of myself right now.. So you have a crappy boss too?
Unlikely, since I'm the boss.I worked for a really crazy boss for 8 years until he was forced to retire 3 years ago. They still haven’t replaced him yet so I am pretty much in charge of myself right now.
It used to be so stressful every day. I hope things get better for you.
