Flood trap testing by goffrie

Movie Description:

Yet another flood trap. This one with a huge number of screw pumps. It floods and drains very quickly, although it takes a while for the intake to refill.

This would work with magma, but (a) it's a lot more of a hassle to set up and (b) it's annoying to drain.

A few things to note in retrospect:

(1) I should have put the intake reservoir closer to the stream to avoid blocking my hallway, and separate from my well supply so that I always have water while the trap is refilling. Alternately, I could have pumped straight from the river.
(2) More screw pumps! (just kidding. It's fast enough as it is)
(3) I should have some kind of water recycling mechanism, to lessen the refill time.

Actually, I could have done the whole thing with an aquifer. That would have been pretty convenient, but there isn't one on this map.

Random note: While the pumps were being built, I foolishly started them to try to drain the intake ditch. A baby fell in. That was fun.
