In Case You Were Wondering, It works
All the electrical worked, the battery was charged from the solar panel and the pump came on with a flick of the switch. The system pressured up for the first time as I held my breath. I just knew a pipe would burst or a fitting would start leaking because usually that's what always happens. After a few seconds the lines reached the desired pressure and the pump shut off.
"Holy Crap! It's working." I called out to the wife.
"That's great honey" she said back in that voice every man knows that really means, "I am responding, but I am not listening."
"Go ahead, water something" I said excited to see the new system put to use.
"Yea, that's real nice" she said not turning around and still working in the garden with her cute little sun hat on.
"I'm going to run down to the bar for a while babe, see ya later" I said to see if that would get her attention.
"What, What's going on?" Now suddenly aware I was in the same yard.
"Oh, nothing, hey I got the water system running do you want to use it"
"Oh, wow, you bet, that's great" Now she was all smiles.
I still have to do some final clean up and add the other batteries but never the less, this is the finished product.
Thank y'all for stopping by.
