Return to Gough's Orchard Syphon

With another small supply of potting material to hand, we dropped in at GO to tackle another joint and had just had enough to complete the job.

What is quite pleasing, is when you spot a small dribble leaking out from around the joint as this would certainly have been the site of a troublesome air leak.

We are now awaiting delivery of enough potting to complete all the joints.  That is currently being made for us as part of a generous donation from Robnor Resins at Swindon.  More about them another time.
A small hole is made at the top in each of the joints and the potting poured in until you can pour no more.  We're looking forward to testing the system again once all joints have been attended to.
