|Drillers hard at work.|
The well depths in our neighborhood range anywhere from about 150-700' deep. Needless to say, we were hoping ours would be in the 150-200' range to keep costs down. The well is located on the hill just behind where the house will be, not far from the power pole, so the electricity is close at hand.
|Water at 60 feet!|
The following Monday we went down just for the day, to meet with the pump guy, Rick. He installed the pump, and a temporary fix for us to get water for the RV. This will take care of us until we are ready to get the water to the house.
No more trips to the fire house for water! Up to this point, we've been a bit stingy with water while we are at the property, hoping we won't run out and have to go get more water. (The gauge showing how much water remains in the trailer doesn't work well, and we're never sure.) From now on water will be plentiful!
|Here I am, getting my first drink of water...Yum!|
