חוליית פי הבור
חוליית פי הבור הוצבה על פתחו של בור המים. החוליה נועדה לאפשר התקנת מכסה לשמירה על ניקיון המים ולמנוע שאיבה על-ידי זרים וכן להקל על השאיבה בדלי ובחבל. לבור המים פתח צר, הוא הולך ומתרחב כלפי קרקעיתו וצורתו פעמונית בדרך כלל. הבור מולא באמצעות מרזבים מגגות הבתים או תעלות שניקזו אליו מי נגר מהסביבה.

The cistern was filled with gutters from the roofs of the houses or canals that drained runoff water from the area.
