Well, it wasn't strike 3!

Our water just went out again! Hubby called the plumber, and he said that means something is wrong, more than the electric panel that went out last time. He said possibly bare wire somewhere, but this means unless he can find it in the house, he's going to have to check the pump, and that will require pulling every thing up outside!

Last time our bill was more for his labor, than the actual part. He joked and said someone had to pay for that big fancy truck so he could get to his customers house. So not only will we have to pay to replace the electric panel again ($70), but now we'll be paying through the nose for him to find the problem, and we get to sit another night without water. I hope it's an easy find!

Sometimes I just wonder what I did to tick someone off that this stuff keeps happening!

I think you need to send hubs to the store to pick up Doc Gunterkat's remedy: some white chocolate Reese's cups, vanilla bean ice-cream and LOTS of Baileys. Eat (and drink) up!

Don't drink too much since you don't have a pot to pee in.

I'm sorry that you are having such trouble. It really is hard when it keeps coming and coming.

Re: Well, it wasn't strike 3!

Plumbing problems can be so expensive when you have a well. We had the wires going down to our pump go bad a few years ago. The plumber/well guy doing the job said every time the pump turned on it jerked and rubbed the wires against the side of the well & they shorted out. We ended up replaceing the pump with a better one while they were down there because the biggest expense is having all that stuff raised out of the well. The old pump only had a couple more years of good expected anyway.
I really hope you get away with a much less expensive repair then we had and get your water back quickly. There is NOTHING that makes me grumpier then not getting my morning shower!

Yeh! We have water! The plumber just left a bit ago. The problem was exactly the same thing that Sue (katlover13) mentioned in her post! Just from movement in the pump everytime it kicks in, over time, the wires wore out in one particular spot, and shorted out the electrical panel. The good news.......even with all his labor (and he was here quite a while), my bill wasn't nearly what I thought it would be! Todays cost was only $141! Less than the last bill! He said he gave us a break because he was just here for the same thing not long ago.

His last customer must have paid his truck off!

Sounds like a nice, honest guy.
