All about pumps

The simple orange pump in the basement/garage is activated by an electronic float in the tinaco (large water container) on the roof. When the water level in the tinaco gets too low, this pump moves water from the huge cistern under Johnnie's casita up three stories to the tinaco.

The fancy Danish pump next to the tinaco on the roof moves hot and cold water sideways (to the washing machine), and down into the sinks, showers, and toilets in both houses. Water was running in the kitchens and bathrooms before...but was moved by gravity, and thus arrived in only in a bare trickle.
