At least the little bugger wasn't looking for his shadow
. More like Smitty's stash!
Last night I'm watching another crazy football game (lot of em this week) and someone yells that the waters gone off? Ok that's weird since it's a deep well (500 feet) and the power is on, no fuses blow can't figure it out. Now I'm getting miffed since I changed out the dang motor on the pump only a few years ago to the tune of $800 for the plumber to pull all that 500 feet of cable and line out of the well. I finally call the plumber (at home) and tell him. He says he'll come by in the morning. Just for grins I go down to the pressure tank and pull the cover off the pressure switch. Tap the contact points that turn the pump on and off and bingo, I'm back in bizz!
Must have got so damp in there and a little rust or maybe the tiny little hole got clogged in the switch but whatever, she pumps back up to 45psi and I'm a happy camper. Call back the plumber with a happy heart and tell him thanks for letting me bug him at home and if it stops again I'll phone him! Right after that, my Coal man calls and asks me can I take delivery of 6 tons of bulk tomorrow morn. Yep, I sure can!
