  1. Zach,
    I didnt know that you lost your wife.
    My sincere sympathies!!!
    I have 40 years gardening experience, 30 years canning experience. I Moved to my “farmstead” in 2009.
    I have A LOT of experience in most aspects. I have not done solar. Otherwise, with the exception of a non electric water source, I am self sufficient . I have a form of muscular dystrophy and bad diabetes. I was at deaths door from diabetes not knowing that I was a diabetic. Doctors told me that most people do not recover from where I was. Fast forward to 2-26-2021. I NEED an alternate non electric water source. I watched your “Lehmans pitcher pump rebuild” video. I have 6 275 gallon ibc totes that I can used as a water catchment set up. I need some advise on how to set up a water tank system going from outside into the house. Lehmans is actually 35 minutes from my house. Can you make a video for me on the set up you have and how you put it together. I would like to be able to put a pitcher pump on my kitchen counter. Time are difficult financially and people and government are getting more and more insane. I NEED to be the rest of the way self sufficient. I am grateful for your consideration and your kindness!
    You and your family are absolutely in my prayers!!!!!
