Yes, it is now fully functioning and has gone through the first wet tests. That is, test with water running through it. Now, the functionality still needs to be refined, but the basics are in place which will allow me to start to refine them while addressing aesthetic issues at the same time.
What you see here is the skeleton of the sculpture with all the basic elements in place and working in harmony. That is, the Peristaltic pump pumps beautifully and can pull water from 30 feet. The transmission with pulleys transfers the pedal power to the pump as well as the centrifuge sand filter and the UV filter! Awesome fun to pedal and watch happen before your eyes.
I have drank the water from the sculpture and it is yummy!
