    Soliciting ideas for ground up design for new well and water tanks on a hillside

    There's actually some galvanized lines up above the well area on a flat spot where it was "developed" at one time.

    Soliciting ideas for ground up design for new well and water tanks on a hillside

    "Well" I'll be... I just walked over to scout out the property that's going up for auction, and there's a dilapidated well house, a well, a controller, and a pressure tank. Everything seems rusty and hasn't worked in years and years, but there is definitely a well there. I'll get some...

    Soliciting ideas for ground up design for new well and water tanks on a hillside

    Thanks. To be clear, I'd have a main panel at the well site, and only run wires to the tanks for the float switch and a subpanel just to have power up there. The main panel would feed the controller at the well. I definitely will want to have at least one hydrant. I need to find out what the...

    Soliciting ideas for ground up design for new well and water tanks on a hillside

    Guys, As mentioned in my other thread, I may be bidding on the property next door in January 2023. The owner owes back taxes and the county is going to auction it off. No buildings are on the property, but there's a power line down to maybe a breaker panel. Property details: It's approx 4...

    Moving water tanks up the hill for more pressure - Need advice on piping

    I really hope I'm able to buy the 4 acres next to my property. I ran out of water on Sunday morning, after trying to keep the landscaping alive during our brutal heat wave last week. Tuesday it was 115* and 10% humidity, and for several days after it was still close to 110 and 11% humidity. I...

    Moving water tanks up the hill for more pressure - Need advice on piping

    The lower tanks are atmospheric. I'm now pressure tank free! So, essentially it's a valve like in a toilet? Once the water rises to a certain level, it cuts off? I know I can control the proposed tank(s) level with a float switch like the one I currently have.

    Moving water tanks up the hill for more pressure - Need advice on piping

    Guys n Gals- All is well on the water tank endeavor. My only issue now is my well doesn't produce what my landscape would like, and who knows how much worse that will get in the future. There's been a new development in the neighborhood. The adjacent, vacant property is going up for auction...

    Getting water hammer with both turning on and off the shower water

    The fixtures, including the shower are all one handle. None made the noise when I moved in 6 years ago. The sounds are one or two knocks/bangs, but no rapid fire or repeating sounds of that nature. My showerhead has been drilled out with a 1/2" drill to increase flow, but again I think that...

    Getting water hammer with both turning on and off the shower water

    Thanks guys. I've been here six years and I think it started about a year ago. I'm hoping I can avoid tearing into the sheetrock.

    Getting water hammer with both turning on and off the shower water

    Looking for some advice here. I've got some short bangs in the wall when I turn on the shower too fast or turn it off too fast. It happens when I turn the faucet in the bathroom on or off too fast as well, on both hot and cold settings. All the reading I've done indicates water hammer happens...
