No, I'm referring to our well. Those of us that live in rural America, otherwise known as the sticks, have well water which is free until something goes wrong. Then, it becomes incredibly expensive. I didn't immediately know about said bladder issues right away. It went something like this...
Girl child flushed the toilet and a loud rumble ensued, actually making the floor tremble. It had poured all day and weird things happen when there is a lot if rain and you're on a well. So, I scratched my head, shrugged and did the only logical thing; I flushed the commode again. This time there was no noise but the water turned a dirty, murky color. Again, I chauked it up to the onslaught of precipitation that has dumped on us (haha dumped, flushing of toilet..bad joke I know).
Fast forward to time to cook dinner. I turned on the kitchen faucet and it began to spit and sputter like there was air in the line. Then, it completely stopped. It was in that very moment that it occurred to me that something was seriously wrong. How it was just now occurring to me, no one will ever know. Hubs began the regular checklist of checking the breaker box, checking other faucets, etc and then headed to the well house to learn of the pressure tank's demise.
Hellllooooo weekend! Thankfully the well guys were able to come yesterday and fix it. However, when we turned on the faucets, dirt and sediment in the pipes blew through them all, clogging the kitchen and bathroom sink and the toilet! Fan-freaking-TASTIC! Poor hubs has spent all day replacing faucets, taking faucets apart and cleaning them and replacing that contraption inside the throne tank.
I am very happy to announce that all faucets and toilet are fully functional!! I haven't tried the dishwasher yet; I'm too scared of he fallout that could occur!
