View Full Version : I need a Plumber

10-21-2007, 03:39 PM
Never mind the folowing messege, I finally talked to the Plumber and he told me to just power it down and keep it powered down till he gets here first thing in the am.
he is even bringing coffee.
this WILL involve digging, wish my nephews did not have school
they would love this

I sent my daughter to go wash the dog, so I could finish a couple toys to be felted
and she comes back with "Mom we got NO WATER"
being the Mom I am, I got up to check, and we have very little water (takes about 4 min to get one cup of water from the trickle from the open faucet)
checked the circuit breaker, not that
what I think is the pump is going on and off Quickly
from what I have found online
this is BAD

Any plumbers out there also Knit?

I'm glad you were able to get hold of someone.

I love the fact that he's bringing coffee. That's always my biggest concern if the power goes out. :teehee:

You must have a well and an electric water pump - the joys of living in the country. I hope you have the usual stash of milk jugs full of water so you can flush the toilet.

News is worse than I thought
the pump is not QUITE dead
but the Reason it is close to death is because its almost totally buried in Mud
not sure why, but my well might have collapsed, or it could have been silt buildup
I have water, but its minimal at best
and I might be needing a new well Dug

and I just paid my HomeOwners Taxes
I don't have this money right now
Life SUCKS, its a good thing I have a stash of yarn, so I can enjoy my knitting
