OK

I made my point. I actually laughed out loud at your post.

I just thought you might know where your freakin' water comes from, or maybe helped your dad work on it at some point. I know I sure as hell did when I was a kid, remember one Christmas eve when I was little it got down around zero and we were down at the pump house at the spring in the middle of the night with a fire built and propane torches trying to get the lines thawed out before they burst.

Ok, you live in a totally different world. I've never seen a pump house. We've got a well. That's all I know. House was built in '77 and I think it's the original pump. Just quit working late this afternoon out of nowhere.

Now that I think of it, I have seen the big boxed in hole at our cabin that has the pump in it, but we don;t have anything like that here. I'm so tired right now. It's been a long day.

I figured the water table there might be pretty high and you'd have a shallow well and an above ground pump with a little house built over it.


Is this what you have? It has a submersible pump way down inside of it.

Yep, all depends on where the water table is at. IIRC, anything greater than 30 feet or so and it requires a submersible pump. I live on a creek that joins Mobjack bay and if you dig a hole about two or three feet in the ground and it fills right up with water.

Yeah I built a pump house around that well head. Early 80's. My well is 90' down and I think the pump is about 75-80'.

Many lately run the control box and the tank inside the house itself. So all you see is the well head with a pipe heading underground towards the house. And two closets in the house or garage - water heater and well tank.

I prefer an outbuilding and use the footage in the house for living, closet, whatever. It ain't a ranch without a pump house.

That one above is mine, its 300ft.

Yeah, that's the way mine is. Control box and tank are in the garage, figured if the tank ever sprang a leak while we were gone, it would run out on the concrete floor in there instead of ruining all the floors in the house, lol.
