Waste away

Our biopod is now installed, quietly awaiting it’s population of worms, and something for them to be getting on with.

For the second time in as many weeks, large trucks and a digger sink a huge tank into the ground on our property.  This time it was allegedly Wairarapa’s first Biolytix biopod, a system which uses worms and micro-organisms to organically convert waste water and sewage into garden irrigation water.
It’s negligible use of power made it the best possible choice for our off-grid situation, but the moment of truth will come when it’s connected to our electricity supply (when we have one) and we start using it.

The Pod is buried, cemented in place and connected to our plumbing. 
The wiring for the pump will be connected later.
The digger then excavates the tracks for the feedlines...
...which will irrigate the soil below ground with the clean, processed water
from the Biopod.  Sounds good, doesn't it?
