This years big project

We did this work today. The concrete rings will house the well equipment below the frost line. We trenches the power conduit and a frost free water line to the tennis court that will also be an ice skating rink. The rink needs year round water for making the ice and for the zamboni machine. We also have a 2" line for the irrigation system with will be seasonal. This property is a 14 acre estate that will have main house, guest house, barn, tennis/ice rink and two gunite pools. I have (3) 3hp submersibles each making about 45 gpm, 3 hunter 2 wire systems and 2" main everywhere. I will post more pics.

These pics are from August when we pulled in the main and wire and set up the first well. We pulled in the main and wire in 400' sections and joined them with a union, tee and plug with a loop of wire for future expansion be cause there is no firm landscape plan. I made that wood cover for the well pit.

OSHA would be all over that for not using trench boxes.

Doesn't really look deeper than 5 feet. The rings are the shield

Is that a clay tennis court and if so how do they make the ice? Do they have to place something over the clay before they flood it and freeze it? Looks like a fun job!

Yes the court is clay. The court has PEX tube under it you can see it in one of the pics. They pump glycol through the tubes which is chilled below 32 degrees. Then after the the surface is below freezing they spray water on the surface and it freezes. They do this many times layering the ice. They do put down some plastic I think so the ice looks white.

Are you watering the clay in summer?

The tennis court is whats called a hydro court. There are perforated PVC pipes run underneath the clay and they drip water out of them, this keeps the surface damp.
