Already on to the Pelton wheel - the most efficient water wheel turbine you can get for the relatively low flow we might end up with. :thumbleft:

We have a private water source as part of our property but it's currently unused due to a 'break' in the concrete storage tank (1000ltr) but the water flow from THAT source is still just running away as 'waste'. We've tried to find the original pipe coming over to the property as this could be quite a good source for powering a turbine wheel and 'right on our doorstep' too if we can find it!

Not really interested in FiTs as I believe they are just 'theft' from other tax payers so wouldn't go that route on sheer principle.

So could we have the plans or have you decided to ditch it. I am trying to make my own but running into a brick wall ::b

Plans? What plans? This is (as per the usual kellys_eye method) a suck-it-and-see thing. I'm still trying to source some 3" diameter water pipe for the penstock. Need about 100m (prefereably 150m) of the stuff but too tight (or skint) to purchase it new.

What kind of problems are you having?

sent from my laptop using my fingers - because we REALLY need to know where it's come from.....
