Poor Pepino

Time for some overdue maintenance on Pepino.  The ol' boy is still keeping me cool but has been leaking, spitting, and sputtering.  Picked up parts today to replace the upper reservoir, the hoses, and perhaps the pump.  94,103,70,0,B

So fortunate you can do your own work. I once bought a book and did some plumbing here (saved a lot). Had a new roof put on my house yesterday and was at first preturbed. Change for me can sometimes be a little unsettling and take adjustment. But all is right on Gods world. He is the one with the master plan. I just have to do the foot work. Hope you get pepino fixed soon. It should cool a little on a few weeks.

Pepino has always fascinated me and I have much appreciated John's reporting on it's design and operation.

This is the type of system we want to use when we move out to our place on the Terlingua ranch also. Your posts are always so informative and enjoyable.

Considering the heat there and the remoteness, maybe Pepino needs a brother or sister to back him up or for added pleasure. If one is good, two might be better. :-)

What happened to Pepino 2? Is it being saved for when you move into the container?

John any chance during the rebuild you can maybe do an in-depth on how you built it, how it works with some pics?
