Easy project, But
I’ve had this pump starter laying around for some time now and it was time to get it hooked up, just to get the job out of the way. We have spring water so I don’t really need the well or rarely even use it. But I like to keep it going just as a back up, just in case.
When I turned the power on to test the pump, nothing happened.
I had the wire disconnected at the well so there shouldn’t of been that bad hum as nothing was connected or so I thought.
Get the meter out
Fortunately I know how use one of these things to measure electrical stuff as you can’t see electricity to test for it, but you can feel it to test it, but that’s not the way to go. That’s why they make meters.
I needed some time to think about it so I washed one of the dusty blankets from my last van trip as a lot of dust got in the van and my blankets got real dusty.
I thought I had all the wires unhooked but then I remembered I’d hit a wire that goes to my gate controller some time back when I was weeding it and that wire went to the well for power. I didn’t do anything about it at the time as I use another wire for the gate now.
One more chore
I put that aside for the day as the sun was about to go over the hills to the west and there was still something I wanted to get done while there was still a bit of sun shining.
I gave myself a haircut and trimmed my beard back. I always do the best I can at it, but if I mess up, it really doesn’t matter. Have you seen how people are wearing their hair these days? I did notice I’m getting older and not the young guy I used to be. :O)
The sun went down and I put my shirts back on and put the tools away and did some chair hopping around the yard. I’ll finish hooking up the well another day.
My blanket didn’t dry out all the way so I took it down for now as the dew will make things damp around here tonight.
There’s no better apple than one off the tree in late fall. The right apple is crisp and tasty, very yummy. It always amazes me that most people never try an apple off the tree in winter. They can be the best, if not, just throw it on the ground. You never know about an apple unless you try it. There’s a lot of things in life that way.
