Bleecker Mountain Swimming Pool

Heavy rain was forecast.  Water and insulation don't mix, so I covered the pump house floor with the best tarp I had, the only one without holes. Today, this is what I found.  A swimming pool.

OK, maybe a wading pool would be a better term.  Or foot bath.  But I needed to get the water off of there without slopping it onto the insulation underneath.  How?  See the rope laying in there?  I put it there.  Capillary action.  Capillary action acts something like a siphon, and the water will travel down the rope and onto the ground.

Drip... drip... drip.

  1. Why didn't you just let the dogs play in it? 20 min and they'd have splashed it empty! LOL
