We go to the little building built around the well, screw in our water hose, put the other end in the jug/tank, and flip the switch (a light switch) in the building, and the water comes shooting out.
How easy is that?!?! When we get home we connect the tanks with the hose and transfer the water. We have a 1/2 horse power pump that is supposed to pump 1400 gal. of water an hour. Then, the water is gravity fed to the sink in the cabin and another hose runs the gray water to a dry well below the cabin. We only use all natural products (dish soap, hand soap, toothpaste, etc.) so it's not bad for the environment. Pretty cool we think. It makes us appreciate the water much more and become aware of how much we're using.
