Gough's Orchard Syphon

Yesterday, a conduit was laid from the top float switch into the brick enclosure.  It now resides under the surface out of view and away from rodents.  We operated the syphon for a couple of hours, but the air leak problem still exists and will only get sorted once all the joints are fully back potted.  

One indicator of full flow having been reached is the tip of a sunken wheelbarrow just breaking the surface!
