Well, we had to dig up our well yesterday. I went out to mow (I have a jungle of a lawn..love it!) and as I was unhooking a hose I noticed a considerable amount of water around the well and hydrant. It took a second for my mind to compute the fact that the water was NOT coming from the hose or the hydrant but up from underground. Luckily, our friend, Steve had just been there and I was able to con him into coming back to help assess the problem.
We ended up turning off the pump to the well so the girls and I spent the day waterless. (Poor potty training girl was having a hard time with the not flushing after she went pee.)After work Brad, Steve, and Devin dug up the ground, found a hole in one of the pipes, fixed it and got the water to the house running again! Yeah for running water. However, wet wipes come in EXTREMELY handy when you find yourself in such a situation.
Interestingly enough our neighbor stopped to see want Brad was doing and the same thing happened to his well and he had used the same drilling company that we had. Brad figures it's something to do with the kind of different metals in the fittings and the water causing some sort of Electrolysis or something. Well I'm just glad I've got water again!
