A good day yesterday. No TIA's.:)
I watered my grass after cutting it and then discovered a problem with the pump.:( After a search on the net it seems that my preasure tank has become waterlogged. I guess today I'll have to bypass it.and see it will continue to give me problems. The old pump has been running for almost 30 years at my place. I guess it's time I had to do repairs. I hope I don't have to pull the point up and clean it. That's a big job. The sand points in this area get clogged with iron deposits and require an acid bath to remove the deposit. I should be able to get one of the neighbors to give me a hand as I've installed wells for them.

Just don't over do things Tony. Don't want to hear you had to be rushed to the hospital again. I am sure your neighbours will be happy to help you with your pump.

So nice to have cool weather again even if its only for a few days but it sure helps to be in the low 80s rather than the low l00s.

Stay well dear one. Catch you tomorrow.

Hi Tony.My fishing trip is over.Now I'm trying to get the energy to go kayaking and off road biking.The 90 degree weather is coming back in a couple of days so if I want to go out and play I'd need to do it at sunrise.:)

I'm sure that it shouldn't be a problem with your neighbors helping, as you've been a good neighbor to them over the years!

Do you have hard water there?
