Just taking some time to catch up on our projects for 2017.
We called Jimmy to see if he could help us lift the well pump out of the ground to see what the problem was. He has always been a good guy and sent Johnny over and then showed up later with Randy. They had an awesome set up that was like a pulley system to pull the well pump out of the ground. Sorry no pictures because I was getting parts. Anyway when they got the pump put of the ground there was a hole in one of the fittings and it was completely rusted through. Since Mike had a back up pump he decided to just swap it out for now. How on earth a fitting that is supposed to be underground for a well rusted through is beyond me. We will test and fix the old pump at another time but for now we have a new pump in the ground.
