Rate this Entry
so in my basement i have a pump and exp. tank running the well for my sprinklers. This year in the NE it has been very dry... Wellone day i came home to find the pump still running at 6 pm...and not a drop of water comin out...my impeller got damaged but the tank was fine... i replaced the pump and it works fine....BUT NO water still....
I then took a pitcher pump ,cut the pvc coming into my foundation and tried to draw water out manually. This also unsuccessful due to the fact that it was getting air through a crack or dried up pipe dope....So i dug.I dug i dug idug..And the elbow was found quickly 3.75' below grade.Thats the elbow that connects the pvc coming into foundation horizonattly,and the larger pvc going straight down..??????How far down vertically will this pvc go before hitting galvanized...im now at 7.5 ft below grade and scared that ill never get outta this hole. wheres the metal at dude?????
