Friday April 8, 2016 Jenner CA.
The wind was down
It looked like the wind was going to be down today so I got it together and headed on down to Jenner to kayak for the day.
I crossed the river back to Penny Island and was thinking of going on down to the river’s mouth area, but my back was hurting from the burn where I lean back on it, so I decided to call it quits for the day.
I packed it up and went on home for the day.
Worked on the car
My car had been making a weird noise near the right rear wheel, so I investigated that. I found the rear axle nut a bit loose, so tightened it up tight and that should fix that little noise, I hope, otherwise I’ll have to take things all apart later if it doesn’t fix it, but I think it will.
Worked on the pump hookup
Next I went over to my brother’s and got the new pump stuff so I could prep it. I needed to put pipe joint sealer on the joints and get things ready to set the new pump for a well.
We’d planned to use a pressure tank from my hard assed uncles house which died recently. He had two pressure tanks hooked up, but only needed one so we were going to use the other one for the new pump. But when I was draining the tank to cut it out of the system, a lot of real dirty water came out of that pressure tank, which meant that the pressure bladder had cracked and failed and water was corroding the metal in the tank, making the water all black and brown.
I removed the tank from the system and informed my brother he needed to get a new pressure tank.
I spent the rest of the day just puttering around in the yard doing mostly nothing, except enjoying the day.
