Initial inspections showed that there was possibly no electricity going to the pump house, so a call to PSE was first on the agenda.
Pete, Kate's dad, takes this as a opportunity to work on some of the less than correctly installed features of the well.
Terry cancels all of his appointments for the next day and loiters around the property waiting for the Texan to arrive. At around 2 pm, with no sign of him and no response on his cell phone, Terry finally gets through to the wife, who has no idea where the Texan might be. At about 3pm, he is reached on his phone and he arrives a little over an hour later.
He does a quick assessment, says there is likely one of two problems, and for both of them we need to pull up the pump. Our choices are: pump is broken or wiring is broken. Neither is good, but both are fixable. We agree to have the pump crew out the next day (hopefully on time this go-round) to check out the pump.
The next morning the well truck arrives. It is the best the 1980s had to offer. Went well with our pump house and assembly.
