Water and pressure and other such things

We were blessed to have our friend Ian from Melbourne, Oz and a new friend, Glen come out to help Houghton build a new and higher platform for our head tank.  The head tank is what gives us the pressure to have running water into our house.  Originally, it was built up on a platform supported by living trees, but 3 of the trees died after the cyclone, and began to decay, which made the having a big tank full of water up in the air a bit dangerous.  Our new platform being higher means even greater pressure into the house, which is an added bonus as well.  Thanks to Build Aid, we have a safer, and more effective tank platform!
