Gravity Water is water thet floats round like fog thets been around the hills fer years. When them people from space was here they made water that floats. Some of the old mountain people found that they could trap that floatin water and harness it as such. They just puts a pipe in that floatin water they caught and it runs down that pipe into their house to escape. They don't have no pump so it is a way of hasin free water.

We orginal mountain folk know about gravity water, and I bet if they never have seen how gravity water works, they have never eaten poke salet or cresses either. I love the old mountain ways and our food, cresses, leather britches, poke salet, fat back, and cracklins in a big pone of corn bread to go along with it. Thank goodness I had parents that taught me all of our mountain culture and they didn't leave out the lesson on gravity water either.

No wonder people don't use this forum to ask simple questions and maybe get some advice. Seems all the smart asses ran off the person who obviously could have used a few simple solutions.

Now, if "original mountain folk" are suppose to be so friendly, y'all have shot that idea all to hell. Because a person doesn't understand what gravity water means, doesn't mean they need to read a lot of smart ass answers.

Y'all sound like the stero-typed inbred hillbilly rather than decent southern folk.

My solution and the mountain folk way to keep from your pipes freezing is to wrap them heavily, preferably in warm weather ahead of winter, and put some kind of heat in your pump house. I leave my water slightly running, and that keeps it from freezing too. As we say in the mountains too late to put the gate up, when the horse gets out. Yes I am decent mountain folk, as most all of us mountain folk are. We don't use gutter language, as you do. My parents would have washed my mouth out with Lifebuoy. Have a blessed day.
