Hello everyone. It's time to finish up the "house" well and pump story.
Mike disconnecting the water pipes that go to our underground tank:
Cutting off the old water lines:
And plugging the tank:
Mike's new contraption to change the old water lines:
Now our water will go from our well and back into the house:
Our old water pump at the house which we will no longer need:
Mike started cutting the water lines to the old pump…forgetting that there was still some water in the lines, lol:
Now that there is no more water in the lines, Mike can finish cutting the lines and old pump out:
Setting up the electric for our new well pump:
Installing a water filter using Pex:):) Love that stuff. Now that we don't have a big tank collecting the sediment from our well we need a house filter:
The lines are a little too long…we need to go to the store for more pex parts:
Mike getting one more load of gold dirt for my garden:)
Ooh…I cannot wait to start planting:
Mike checking the water level in our batteries and adding some distilled water to the batteries that need it:
We dropped off the pex and the water lines at the barn and took the rest to the store.
We rolled the concrete well cover off the trailer:
A first look at the mess in our store. We need to get down and do some organizing. Mike is picking up our old pantry. It's going back in my kitchen:
Things our turning green:)
One of our next projects is getting ready for the new refrigerator. This is one of our odd things left inside our house. The two refrigerators, lol. The big electric one can be used from about April-October or so. The RV refrigerator runs on propane or electric and is used during the winter months on propane. Mike ordered a new solar refrigerator for us and it will be here anywhere from 2-6 weeks as it is made to order.
Mike taking out our old electric refrigerator:
Taking down the overhead cabinet:
For now we will leave the electric refrigerator in the house for the day of the switchover:
We got the pantry home and moved down to the house. Woo hoo….look at all that storage:)
Mike adding a trim piece:
Ha, ha…our fake rock well cover. Mike likes it. At least it is light:
Mike fixed the pex lines for our water filter. As you can see we already need a new filter. We stirred up the well and there is a lot of dirt in it until it all settles back down:
Getting the lines insulated:
This morning I went down to my "Big Girl garden"(that's for Jaxson:)), and planted my first seeds. Yes I am anal, lol. I had the tape ruler down there and planned it all out. The straws are where my future tomatoes and peppers will be. This helped guide me to plant my beets, carrots, peas, onions, some lettuce and spinach:
We have lots of outdoor plans for the weekend. I hope the weather cooperates. we are still waiting for the well guys to finish the well at the store. I have no idea what happened to them.
Have a great weekend and I will post an update on Monday:)
