You can never stop a leak from the outside. Looks like mostly threaded connections ; unfortunately you may need to unthread a few things to get to the red handled ball valve. The valve is in the off position so turning off water will not be a problem. Once you get to the leaking thread , put a few wraps ( clockwise) of Teflon pipe dope tape on it and ...

Water won't travel along a hose from the pump to the destination, because the water coming out of the pump isn't pressurized, and gravity is not on your side. However, you can harness gravity to do some of the work by building a mini water tower. Basically, all you need is a water tank with hose attachment, on a stand so it's elevated above the final ...

Recently, I've been (in the last two years) into tropical plants, a dramatic shift from strictly succulents and fruit garden. I still tend my succulents and fruit trees, and ...

The acidic nature of the water makes little difference to plants if they are in soil. The buffering affect of soil, particularly calcium, overwhelms the tiny ...

It sounds like this is the first day when you've seen any grass sprouts. My advice for now is to have a bit of patience. Not all the seeds will germinate and grow at exactly the same rate. You'll probably see more growth over the next few days. It's possible that you delayed some of the seeds by letting it dry out on the second day, but it probably (...
