On both Saturday and Sunday mornings of the October National Skirmish, bathrooms along the range side of the creek lost all water pressure for several hours.
Rumor floating around was that there was an electrical issue at the water pump, but due to the repeat problem on Sunday, my guess is that we were overtaxing the water system when we all had our morning flush at the pottys.
I didn’t have the opportunity to confirm the cause of the problem with the property manager.
These outages caused small panics as shooters tried to find open porta-potties, which where wheeled in quickly Saturday to fill in for the bone dry flush potties.
In one funny incident early Saturday about three of us skirmishers ended up with soap on our hands and no water to rinse with, that was an interesting situation to deal with.
This isn’t the first National skirmish that we’ve had to deal with loosing water pressure.
The question now is, how do we prevent this problem in the future?
