It's time to put our well to work!
In the past, when faced with the need for something new for our house in Brittany the way has generally been fairly clear. I stride out to Mr B's or Leroy's as pioneering 'DIY Man'. I have the confidence to go it alone... by-passing the gaggle of Brits you often see glazed over in front of the confusing array of plumbing fittings where, unlike the standard British 9, 15 and 22mm you have a range that rivals the organ pipes at the back of the Albert Hall. I too was initially dazzled into a stupor at the complexity of some French style DIY. In fact our lean-to is stuffed with things we've bought that have quickly proved to be inappropriate. But I don't want to make the same mistake with the well pump since it is likely to cost about £150 and that is too much to consign to the pile marked 'may be useful sometime'.
So... What have you dropped down your well that has allowed you to adopt a more relaxed attitude over your water usage?
Makes and models would be appreciated if James allows that kind of thing...and any tips gleaned from your own experiences?
Our water level is 16metres down so I know one figure that I need to match or exceed on the specification. Is it all as simple as it would first appear?
