It looks like the lack of rain and the added stress of having my daughter, son in law and 2 granddaughters move in has taken a toll on my shallow well.
After turning on the faucet and getting no water Saturday afternoon I called the well company and they came out Sunday morning. I was hoping that it was only my pump or tank but my normal 15 feet of water was down to 12 inches.
The answer is to have a drilled well installed but thats not financially feasible at this time.
As a quick fix they lowered my foot valve. So at least we get enough water for a real quick shower and the occasional flush but no more clothes or dish washer until something changes. Buying bottled water for cooking and drinking.
Hopefully we will get a lot of rain before the ground freezes or else it will be a tough winter.
