 Today, we carried on with the installation of conduits for the Temperature Probes around all our Energy Modules, but after we made a new drilling tool using a steel 32mm diameter pipe and welded four fat nails to the end.

So using our new tool, we drilled and inserted 20 mm plastic pipes around the Energy Modules under Bedroom 3 and Bedroom 2 plus the one under the Entertainment room too.

Mind you, even this all metal tool suffered, one of the nails bent right over and in bending it back again broke off!! But it is doing the job .. as long as the pipe is kept clean. We eventually resorted to using our pressure washer to blast clean the pipe 2 or 3 times whilst drilling a single hole, sometimes the sandy soil is quiet sticky and clogs up the inside of the pipe quickly.

Tomorrow, we will continue with the last two Energy Modules, our biggest ones, with an additional 20 more conduits to do!
