Spring Development Two - Part One

This is the pipe for the second spring that is being developed to supply the barn with water. It will also have a faucet for the garden.

VIDEO OF OVERALL SPRING DESIGN

The guys think we should open a quarry as we have unearthed several substantial rocks. I wish I had a backhoe.
The frost free faucet is loosely sitting in the ground, and will supply the garden and the other fields with water when we want it.
This rock was too big to deal with. The pipe went around it.
The chickens kept pace with the backhoe, and almost got mashed a couple of times.
The old pipe going to who knows where, with the new pipe taking over.
Heating the pipe for stretch and flexibility to fit and shrink over the metal fitting.
The last connection on this end. Tomorrow the tank gets placed and connected.
