Giddy with the thought of water
One thing that is lots of no fun is the feeling of dried sweaty bug spray on one's skin. So the thought of having a bath (installed eventually) perks me right up.
But not Tarr. Baths are a torment to Tarr.
Investigations into well pumps have yielded the following:
1. The good old country girls at work say to get an electric pump.
2. The cost of wiring to get to the pump would be prohibitive and digging a trench to bury it reminds me of the misery involved in trenching in the electric line.
3. I don't need that much water.
4. I've found only 4 makers of hand pumps (that can pump from 55 feet): Bison, Oasis, Simple Pump, and Baker Monitor. Of these, only Oasis at $279 plus shipping costs less than $1000.
5. I don't know if this can be used with a pressure tank. More research to follow.
