In the begnning I didn't mind carting water but that got old real quick. So in
summer for my chicken coop, I run a garden hose from an outside faucet, thru a hole in a screen, resting the nozzle in the sink. I have a double opening on the faucet so I don't have to keep changing and attaching different hoses. There are ones available that shut off individually. I also used to have one that had 4 outlets should you need to go in more than one direction.

I leave it on during the day unless I'm going to be away for the whole day. Suggest you to do the same. You would not need to come home to a leak and burnt pump.
Er, I'm not going to have electricity at first, so I won't have a pump. I'm sure I'll have hose on the faucet but I doubt I'll need a split nozzle. All I'll be doing is filling one or two gallons of water a day and that's pretty much what I do now when I put ice water in the fridge.

Well, now that I think about it, a split nozzle with a 30ft garden hose on one nozzle and a 10ft hose on the other will be useful. A short hose for washing my hair is way easier than fighting with a long hose for that.

Story of my life. I'm one of those hard luck people you read about. I can't remember when I haven't had challenges and usually more than one at a time.


I cook because my pots and pans are the closest thing to a chemistry experiment that I have. So far I haven't blown up the kitchen!

rr, the hoses I only meant for in the future. I understand your electricity is not in yet and it may be a while.

I'm not understanding where your water will be coming from. Will you have a well? A pump can be gas/propane driven.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
