We set-up an irrigation system!!!
We wanted to set up a water tank as a source of water for the garden. The plan was to see if we could connect PVC pipes from the tank to 3 flower beds. If that would work, which it did, we would go along and connect to the other 3 beds.
We started off with a plan. While we were setting up the plan, we found a few flaws in it. What made me angry was that I had ideas to fix those flaws, but no one listened, and when someone else said my ideas which were the same as what I had said, they would call them great.
What I liked is how many of us worked together. Well, in our group some things went along really fast. For example, when we were setting up pipes and were cutting them. It moved along really fast because of the coordination we had. I loved working with my friends and working with people who I'm not comfortable with because it showed me how to get over my ego and just get it done without holding grudges.
I hated when people thought too much of themselves. We all got annoyed and frustrated at one point, but yet we all worked together without getting our egos in the way.
After break when we got back, we had a few problems. The pressure was a problem. We tried many experiments to fix it. After some time and a few tries, we managed to fix it. Soon enough we had all the pipes laid out and all we had to do was test it. After a few tries and making it work, we realized we had to make a way to spread the water through the beds. We used soaker hose and we lined the pipe around the bed cutting a few holes in the hose.
After we tried that, the pipes started to leak a little bit. We found a way to stop the leakage with special glue and connectors. Soon enough when we flipped the valves switch again, water came out!!!
It spread everywhere just as we thought it would.
It was a success!!!
