מגדל המים
מגדל המים שימש את חברי המושב בשנים 1960-1996. בימים הראשונים של המושב, סופקו מי השתייה ישירות מבאר הנמצאת דרומית למושב. המים היו מלאי חלודה ונדרש להרתיחם ולמלא בקבוקים כדי שהחלודה הצפה בהם תשקע. רק בתום התהליך ניתן היה לשתות מהם.

לימים, נבנה מגדל המים הראשון שהיה עשוי מפח וסיפק מים ליישוב.

מגדל המים העומד היום הבנוי בטון, נבנה בתחילת השנות ה-60, והמים זרמו אליו מבאר ייעודית שנקדחה בפרדס.

המים להשקיית השדות נשאבו מהירקון על ידי שתי משאבות: משאבת "בודהה" ומשאבת "קאטר פילר".

כאשר הוקמה ההרחבה, בשנת 1997, הופסק השימוש במגדל המים ובמקומו הוקמה ברכת מים סמוך לבית העלמין, המשמשת את המושב עד עצם היום הזה.

The Water Tower
The water tower was used by the members of the moshav from 1960-1996. In the first days of the moshav, drinking water was supplied directly from a well located south of the moshav. The water was full of rust and needed to be boiled and filled with bottles so that the floating rust in them would sink. Only at the end of the process could they be drunk.

Later, the first water tower was built, which was made of tin and supplied water to the settlement.

The present water tower, built of concrete, was built in the early 1960s, and water flowed into it from a dedicated well drilled in the orchard.

The water for irrigating the fields was pumped from the Yarkon by two pumps: a "Buddha" pump and a "Caterpillar " pump.

When the extension was built, in 1997, the use of the water tower was stopped and in its place a water pool was built near the cemetery, which is used by the moshav to this day.
