Mike and I are now living in a pumpkin, lol. Boy when we finally decide to do something we go all the way. We now have a bright and cheery house that we painted:) It will be hard to go back to neutral colors now, lol.
I have not received the sample of my laminate yet but I am not in a rush for that project. It might be a good project for the winter:)
My garden is doing well and I am happy about that. I will post some pictures next time when things are a bit bigger:)
So…back to the store. Our grader has not shown yet to help with the septic so Mike and I decided to install the well pump. Since we have already installed one well pump this year this one will be easier:) and it saves us a ton of money.
Mike unrolling the water line. Our well is 125 feet deep. We will use 116 feet of water line plus the pump:
And we will need to run some from inside the store to the well:
Next it's time to unroll the electric wire:
The well pump that we had at the house is still in good shape:
Fitting the water line onto the pump:
Getting the pump hooked up:
Mike adding and tightening the clamps at the water line connection to the pump:
Wrapping it with electrical tape to protect it:
Crimping the electrical connection:
Using the torch to melt the shrink tubing around the electrical connections:
And doubling up on the shrink wrap:
Adding the rubber adapter to protect the connections as it goes down the well:
The second rubber adapter at the halfway point:
Look at all those connections. Thankfully Mike put the pressure switch, pressure valve, check valve and the well head together before we went down to the store:)
Mike wraps a piece of carpet over the metal to protect our water and electric lines when it goes down the well:
Getting ready to install all 120 feet or so down the pipe. Mike holds the end with the pump while I help feed the line to him:
That part was easy.:) Now Mike installs the well head onto the top of the well:
That's it. Once we get our lines dug Mike will run the electric to the well and also the water lines to the store.
That's all for now. I will write again next week and get you all caught up on my garden….although I will leave you with a picture of my first harvest of the year:)
Have a great week:):)
