Water flows downhill here

In addition to a siezed motor on the water pump, the water line seemed to be missing something important:  water.

The previous cabin owner was quite smhart – he devised a gravity spring fed water line from a cistern 20 feet uphill to a storage tank underneath the cabin.  Water is pumped into the cabin via a shallow well water pump.

Janeé bravely donned rubber gloves and went in search of the cistern.  After nearly an hour or dredging, she unearthed the screen covered pipe to the cabin.  A quick check and water was flowing!

Almost empty cistern
