May 19, 2016 Just One of Those Days

You ever have one of those days where nothing goes right? For me today was one of those days. Went outside to move the sprinkler this morning and the water wasn't on. Usually the solution is to turn it all off, head to the basement, smack the box next to the water pump, it turns on and fills up, and then we can go back to business. Its not ideal, but its worked until we could get the box replaced. Well, hubbie purchased the new box and was going to replace it. He got the chance today, but the problem today wasn't the box. Because the pump kept making noise, but no water was filling the tank. So hubbie goes to town to look for a part. Yay we found one close enough to make it work...and it was free!

Roll forward to where hubbie gets it put on. That part had needd to be replaced...but thats not whats out this time. Cue dramatic music "duh duh duuuuuuuuh". We actually are unsure of what it is at this point. Hubbie is waiting for a phone call so we can diagnose the problem. Had a couple people say it sounds like some foot thing or other.....I hope not...my Uncle had that problem next door....and he had to have his whole well redug/replaced however that works. I reeeeally don't have $4000 under a rock anywhere. I'm reeeeally hoping it isn't that.

So for now I have a hose going from my front yard to a pump next door because they are family and looooove me. Once we know exactly whats going on we can plan from there. I just really hope I am not working my tail off this Summer for a new well instead of other things we need.

I also need to warm up some of that ice cold water for the chickies that need to come out of the incubator today. So much to do and I don't know where to start...at least I got my strawberry patch weeded...

Have a good day on your end peeps, toodles!
