Lee prepped a new site for a concrete slab. Our old well pressure tank is leaning like the old mailbox. Each year it gets a little worse and Lee dreads another winter. It’s also completely exposed to the elements.
This is the first time Lee has worked with concrete. He wasn’t thrilled with the outcome but it will do. He followed the instructions on the bag in regards to how much water to mix with the crete. It came out too thick and was hard to settle. The two bags where he accidentally put in an extra quart of water turned out much smoother and nicer.
Long term, this pad will be inside a utility building. Until then, we are building a little 4 foot high insulated cover to protect the well hardware. We finished the frame, but then the weather turned nasty and the plumbing, siding, and insulation are on hold.
