I had to wake Wendell which I hated to do because he has not been sleeping at all. He jumped up turned off the water and got dressed. It appeared the pump was clogged. Then he noticed that the pressure tank was not kicking on when we did run the water. I don't know what he finally did but right now everything seems to have on again.
It has rained all night here. When you look out my back porch... this is what you see...
The water is rushing through like a creek. I am sure that is one of the reasons we are having problems. In the top picture you can almost see the rusted barrel that covers the top to the septic tank. A month ago we had to pay to get it cleaned out again. (was done at the end of May) Not right, huh? Water is getting into it somehow. This is the field on the side of us. You can see the road on the other side of the tree line. What you can't see is that the ditch is full of water too.
Its definitely going to be one wet Christmas here at the Kiefer's.... Looks like 2010 may find us looking for another place to live. Wish us luck!
