Yesterday the well was put back into service. It was nothing short of miraculous.
I was fascinated to see what the new pump looked like. This was the old turbine pump:
It was close to 4pm before he pushed the button. We waited. And waited. And waited.
The old pump was VERY noisy. It chugged and glugged and let us know how hard it was working. The new one? He pushed the button, and there was nary a sound.
And then...15 or 20 seconds later...there was a gurgle, and water burst forth into the standpipe!
Caught up for a week...
