Re country living:
At 5 pm, having waited since 8 am, I called a different plumber who came within 20 minutes, told me the seal had gone on the pump. He advised that a new pump was too costly & unnecessary; he'd be back first thing tomorrow morning to disconnect the pump & take it away to be fixed.
Kim...no need to worry about your well. It's usually the little things that break down.
I made it to my steak dinner on time ...barely. They truly are the best restaurant around!
By 9, I was back home for a lovely refreshing bath in the lake. After today's heat, the water temperature was perfect.
So all's well again in my world!
