She Used PVC To Run Water To Stock Tanks
Jody Thorp was tired of thawing out frozen rubber hoses, so she started using pvc pipe to fill her livestock watering tanks. She hangs apiece of pvc pipe on a fence line that runs from near her hydrant to her horse tank.
  “I spent years dealing with long hoses, draining them out, and if they froze, having to bring them in the house to thaw,” explains Thorp. “The pvc is easy to drain because we hang it at enough of an angle that all the water runs out.” She says the idea is easy to put in place and can be extended as needed if the tank is moved. Simply drive in a few additional steel posts and wire the pvc in place.
  “I just cut off the end of a short piece of flexible rubber hose and stick it into the pipe a few feet to fill the tank, and it will stay until the tank is full,” says Thorp.
