All right, this is how my engineered lake works. Right now, it is drained. A couple of springs, there is a couple of about a dock. They are running down here and the big one is at the bottom of the pail.
And right here runs down to where the drain is of that wire mesh is. The plastic bottles are tied to a chain, which pulls open the flapper door that looks like the flapper in the toilet tank. So, if I set the chain to 12 feet, I get it 12 feet of water over the top of the cable ride. And over by the dock is six feet deep and over by the water slides, it is four feet deep so it all works up perfect.
And that is the beach in the distance, the hammock and the refrigerators and that underground hydro in the back here. You can hear the water gurgling. Fresh, clean, drinking water straight from the ground, right there. I get a two acre lake in 10 days to two weeks and it takes 23 hours and 23 hours to drain it all, simple.
Now this is a drain, it is a one-foot concrete pipe that runs a kilometer underground. They are going to the main highway draining system. So if the water comes in here and they have the water coming from that stream then I am going to close the valve and in one week we I will have a new pond again.
See, valve is closed and it is filling up. If I want to drain it that is where I control the level of my lake. So now, it is all set on automatic with the plastic bottles. And here is a close up of the water coming into the ground. And this is what it looks like from up top.
