Now, I consider myself quite a practical person who can come up with loads of solutions to a wide variety of DIY tasks: I have rewired a house, re-plumbed a house, built a garage from scratch and even built a computer from scratch too, but this problem has me completely flummoxed!
Can you help me with some ideas as to what I can do? It’s rather embarrassingly to do with my water works… no not that! I don’t know here my pipe is. Let me explain:
We put our chicken run in a field to the back of our garden and I was told that there's a mains water pipe that runs along the edge of the field and it just needed to be turned on. I couldn’t find the end of the pipe so I thought I’d turn the water on at the meter and see where the wet patch appeared and bingo!
Unfortunately nothing happened so I’m now left with a situation much like looking for a needle in haystack. Can I water divine? Or get a sensor or something to find the pipe? The prospect of aimlessly digging away in the hope of coming across a bit of blue plastic tubing doesn’t inspire me and I thought there must be a more efficient, intelligent and cunning way of getting at the water!
Now I know there's a huge amount of creativity out there so if anyone has any ideas I’d be delighted to hear them… and so would the chickens (“the watering can make it taste funny!”).
