Well, the water box
The 2,000 liters water box arrived too late for the well digging team to set it up, but Sr. Assis was back today with one of his men and an electrician to get it up on the tower and make the electrical connections. The "box" is made of fiberglass, so it's relatively light. After pumping nearly 2,000 liters of water into it, it's another story. I had some fear that the weight might be too much for the tower infrastructure, but there was no sign of stress on the wooden structure. Ney, the carpenter knew exactly what he was doing.
