...and crafting a purposeful recovery

Crunch Time

Not quite frantic, but working diligently to get Sparta shipshape. Right now, functionality is key and cosmetics must take a backseat. That means potty, power, pump and punchlist.

This stuff is dense! I need about 10% of the block in 1 gallon of water and…
Voila! It expands into about 3 gallons of medium to place in the main toilet bin with the hand crank agitator.

So I have the little 12v fan connected and it is quitely venting the system while awaiting the inaugural BM.

I learn something new all the time when it comes to electricity and my latest teaching moment came when I decided to call Progressive Dynamics and find out what I had done wrong. My 12v circuits were not working. The vague schematic they provide on their website was not helpful and this whole wiring thing gets crazy, especially when you consider the considerable downside of messing up.

Two of the four grounds necessary to completing a safe installation of the Mighty-Mini power station.

Yeah, thanks to a little help from Dennis at PD, my system works and so far my vast array of fuses and breakers (10 to be exact) is holding up.

Unfortunately, my water pump is acting up. Or maybe it’s the on-demand water heater. The latter will not engage without sufficient water pressure from the former. I’m confused because it worked fine under initial testing months ago. This may take a call to the people at Excell, makers of the water heater.

Meantime, back at the gray-water purification system, I have experienced problems with the lines clogging with bark, etc. causing the tubs to overflow. It turns out that screen door mesh is too fine and acts as a dam when clogged. So I cut up some rabbit wire as a first line of screening. It works now.

So what’s still on my punchlist?

  • caulk tub
  • wax sticky drawers
  • finish flooring under bathroom vanity
  • complete external a/c plugs
  • trim odds and ends
  • get house jack and level Sparta
  • Weed whack perimeter
  • there’s more I’m sure
Biocompatible soaps for laundry and dishes.

I think I may be working too fast. Pulling wire through tight spaces, using hand tools, digging it the dirt and getting generally frustrated has taken a toll on my right hand. Maybe it’s the dreaded old man skin – thin and crepey. Shit!

Sorry – too graphic for some of you.

Anyone who tells you that age is nothing but a number is full of coconut coir.
