Hi George,

Glad to see you back. Still got your old hydro turbine sitting in the shed! Went a long way down the hydro route but in the end the problems were insurmountable when examined against the cost/return.

Best wishes

Hi simonmcc , previous active member of forum -now just lurk .....
where abouts are you ?? i have probably 50m of 63mm pipe foc for the collecting from a previous life !
Location Forest of Dean -gloucestershire.
rgds George.

Thanks George, I'm actually in Northern Ireland, so that's not going to be practical, unfortunately.

I still didn't manage to get any further, never got budget for my pipeline, but I'm pleased to say that my water collection barrel / mesh survived the winter (and summer floods!). I'll dust the project off sometime Smiley
