Water Bills vs Well Water

July 24th, 2007 at 05:53 am

I'm going to have to work on this one. I do believe city water is going to come out the winner..........and I'd wish I was paying a monthly bill, no matter how high.

The well repair/plumber people were here yesterday, after the house was without water for 5 days. The parts were checked in order of least to most important.......and of course, it was the entire pump that had blown out. So hoping it was going to be some stupid breaker box snafoo........but no.

With all the innards of the pump strung out on the driveway, they began to put the new set up back down in the ground. Pretty simple system actually, but way more than I was going to tackle. HA!

A mere $4600 and change later, we have water. Since there is no city water here, this is my only option, but wow, what I'd give to be complaining about a water bill monthly at this point.

Fortunately, there is an ER fund here and the check was written and we're all taken care of. Can't say enough for putting money aside, especially if you're a homeowner. Homes do just suck up money!

    OMG, ouch, that hurt!

    I paid $5k to go on town water a few years ago and i am so glad i did, both from a peace of mind perspective and also for resale value when i sell the house. But i also keep the original well hooked up to supply 2 exterior faucets, and that pump is pretty old and so i'm sure hoping it doesn't go. I'd really like to keep the exterior faucets going but that sure is pricey.

    All I pay is $20 a month and it is so worth it!! I distill my own tap water for drinking and it is really good.
