best advice I've seen here yet
outstanding! thank you
If they only hadn't drilled a well so close to the house when they built it in '84, the dumm clucks! About 8 feet from the overhead garage doors. Frost heaving is a real concern when the ground...
Indeed ! Alot of things have changed in Wasilla over the years, it's more like the lower 48 every year so hang onto your hockey pucks...
Meanwhile, appreciate those leads.
I haven't tried removing it....yet.
Ingenious ! Wish you could be in my service area ......:o
Might you be able to share the source of that air relief valve for the top cap ?
Oh for sure, only on the hot water side of the tap tho.
Aforementioned knowledgable friend suggested that the heated hot water permits gas/water seperation much in the same way that heated water...
Suphur gas is not common in my area. Methane very much is and harvested for profit ! And Methane is most odifirous.
Earthquakes (albeit small nonetheless significant) certainly change water table...
about a gallon or two per hour
I wouldn't. There is an increasingly offensive odor to my water supply since we plugged the casing
Just speaking to a friend who is quite knowledgeable, he is wondering if there isn't trapped air or gas in the aquifer that wasn't confined in the casing until we put the artesian plug in ! :eek:
The pressure tank wasn't changed. It's an air bladder type.
Where would the above-ground check valve be located ?
I wrote before about submersible well pump brands and last week it was done. A pro changed my submersible pump with like kind in residential well, 86 feet deep with 6 inch casing and pump...
thanks much, good advice
dammed good advice ! I like it
So I suppose the only big disadvantage of the CSV setup is when the power goes out--no residual water storage. And with the power on, a pump running continously is going to consume more electricity....
thanks ! that's really helpful !
ok clue me in--a CSV ?
(maybe "centrifigal sprinkler valve"?)
Oh, sorry--I didn't really mean buried....yes there is a 2 feet stub, I was implying something so expensive to service.
I have a fairly small water tank so cycling would be an issue trying to water...
Good advice. So watering the lawn is out !
You'd think at least something that's going to be buried would last a decent time considering how much expense and inconvienence it costs to correct it.
I'm using Avast anti-virus and a defender window popped up saying "Dangerous Trojan Horse blocked". Not all anti-virus or malware programs will catch an embedded virus and not every virus will...
Along the same topic, what is the life expectancy of a pump control box ? My Franklin control box is working fine, but the whole system was installed in 1984. When I spoke to Franklin Motors over...
Not much faith in Franklin anymore, huh? :rolleyes:
Except when the plumbing breaks (sweated joint failure)--and noone home. Ugly stuff
Speaking of which, is there something on the market that detects a plumbing disaster and shuts off the pump...
