Motorizing an Evapotron

Post by gerflash » Sun Jun 10, 2018 6:05 pm

I live with Pepperland Theme Camp, and for the last 6 years or so, we've used a classic Evapotron model (designed by Larry Breed).
Usually, it works without a hitch, but last year, except for a short blast of devastating wind on Wednesday, there really wasn't enough wind to power our Evapotron and get rid of all our gray water. But we noticed that our neighboring camp, Tarwater, had a nearly identical Evapotron as ours, with one exception: attached to it was a small motor that could keep the wheels turning and working when the wind slowed or stopped. I wish I'd've snapped a picture of that motor, and talked to someone there to see what they used and other details.
If Tarwater peeps see this post, or anyone who has motorized their evapotron, we'd sure like to share in that knowledge! This is Gerflash. See you in the dust.
