My Evapotron Build Out leveling the tray on the playa

Post by thatcalifire » Wed Aug 10, 2016 12:09 pm

Greetings-

I've built my own variation of the Grey-B-Gone Evapotron found here: http://evapotrons.info/home

Here is my variation of the design here (not wind powered, solar charged, dc battery backup):


I'm concerned with water pooling at one end of the tray. Does anyone have any experience with leveling things out there? Or is playa pretty level as it is?

Thanks for looking and any tips

The playa is as flat as a pancake. I think it was Rhino who once said the biggest deviation was something like two feet in 10 miles. Even the dunes I have seen are measured in single-digit inches.

Shhh, don't tell how things are or the playa will hear you. This will be the year of 20 foot dunes and rugged canyons.
