In a month or so we will move house to Yanchep and to a house with no reticulation. Fortunately I know a bloke who can help…
So at some point over the winter period I will be getting busy installing my own reticulation and it will likely involve a bore. Its a 950sqm block in old Yanchep so it seems to make sense to invest in a bore to service that kind of an area.
The diagnosis of the groundwater by the Perth Ground Water Atlas of where we will be living looks quite promising (see the above diagram) so we’re hopeful that getting the bore down won’t be a major expense (any more than bores usually are)
From there it will be a case of figuring out the best way to supply water to the various parts of the property. These will include some lawn, a significant permaculture veggie patch and some regular garden areas.
Depending on the $$ factor we may rig up our retic to run off the mains for a bit but with the ability to easily change it to a bore when we can.
Once we begin work I will be doing some regular updates on here detailing how we have gone about reticulating our own home and why we have chosen the methods we have.
