What's That, Lassie?

The well and pump dudes arrived. I crossed my fingers that whatever was causing the no water pressure problem was inside the utility room. Anything done inside the well like pulling up the pump and replacing pipe is charged by the foot. Our well is a deep one at 440 feet. Turns out, the pump inside the well had breathed its last after 30 years of service, and the well tank decided to go along for the ride.

What's that Lassie? How do you appease a water sprite or selkie? You throw money down the well? Aye, will do, but not gonna like it.


  1. Ouch! (But a thirty year run for a pump & tank is pretty darn good! Just sayin'.)

    1. That was then. They don't make 'em like that anymore.
