St. Patrick's Day

Hope everyone has a great day. I'll be working on the pad to place the new tank on and going to a St. Patrick's Day party at the Legion this evening. (If there is one) Its Pat O'bryan's birthday so maybe there will also be a birthday party there to?

I'd had a couple of bags of ready mix concrete I've had for over a year. Fortunately it was stored where the rain and snow couldn't get to it so it was still good. I used both bags to mix with the adobe dust that was left over after I dug out all the big rocks I could get out. I've got a large piece of carpet and don't have anything else to do with it so I plan to cut a couple of pieces to lay over the concrete and then set the tank on top of that.

  1. That sounds like a good plan for the tank foundation. Have you built the pad up far enough to let rain run off?

  2. DD, once two layers of carpet are under the tank it should be high enough.

  3. Carpet should work good, I used Blue insulation board, anything to keep the pointy rocks under control.

  5. Bkid, I didn't think about blue board. I have some of it, but the carpet is in the way and that will give me a chance to get rid of it.

    MsB, it was a great multipurpose party and we all had fun. (several birthdays were represented and then St Patrick's day to.) Ron grilles enough steaks for everyone there and there was plenty of other food to.
