Sluice Monkeys




The princible is that someone shovels gravel into the top end of the sluice, where a sump pump hose discharges its water. The first 8 feet or so of the sluice have a roofing tin bottom. The last 3 feet are wire mesh, which allows the water and dirt to dump into a barrel which holds the pump. All in all it workes fairly well. Still, the rainwater that has finished rinsing the gravel in the pool has emerged in the deep end looking like a big cup of coffee with cream.

Your pool looks great! My husband and I came across your blog. You are doing a lot of the things that we are interested in doing, but you are quite a few steps ahead of us! Thanks for the encouragement that it can be done.

I've been checking everyday to see how the pool turned out. When are you going to show us the finished product. I'm sure it'll always be a work in progress but I'd love to see it.
