Up on the roof

Sure enough, just as David promised, it poured last night, right after the guys had removed most of the rotten roof. Now they're in the process of moving the water tank so they can take care of the rest of it.

Mexican houses generally have these 750 liter black tanks (photo above) on their roofs, since the pressure and flow from the city water system is very low. Water trickles in during the night, and you have the tank capacity to get you through the day (at least).

Thanks for this info, I was wondering what these black tanks were. So was the rest of my family so we googled it and we found your blog :)

Experimental hydroponics have appeared from the seventeenth century when biologists discovered
that crops can grow without soil.
