I live in the country and have a well. I have been noticing my water
seems wetter than it used to. I decided to take the cover off my well
and have a look. When I looked into the well, I was shocked. I
expected to see a pump and pipes and whatever else is supposed to be
in there. Instead I saw water almost to the top of the well. The
well is supposed to be 370 feet deep and I can see water maybe 25 feet
from the top. My well is flooded. No wonder the water is wetter. I
live in Minnesota, so this flooding is not from the hurricanes, and we
have not had any severe rain storms. I dont know what caused this
flooding. I am afraid the water is going to ruin my pump and pipes.
What can I do to solve this? Should I report this to the Red Cross or
FEMA, and should I call my insurance company?
I shut off the water pump just to be safe. I hope someone can fix
this soon because hauling bath and toilet water 14 miles from the city
is alot of work.
Nah, the dangers are completely over-blown by the tree-huggers. I've
used the stuff for years without safety equipment and have suffered no
side effects - hell, a couple of times I accidentally fell into an
entire *tub* of it...other than lightening my skin up a couple of
shades, it didn't hurt a bit.
Timothy Leary stared a speech one time, many many many years ago, by
placing a glass of unidentified clear liquid on the podium and then
going on for several minutes explaining and giving examples of its'
deadly nature, how many people it had killed or crippled, how many lives
it had ruined, how many zillions of dollars damage it had caused over
the years, etc etc etc.
Then he took a sip of it and continued the speech. I saw a tape of it
many years ago and still remember it.
First thing to check is those pipes hooked up to where your fuse panel
enters the house.
Some were installed filled with copper wires and won't let the water drain
properly so it has to back up to your well.
Just rent a pipe auger, and go at it
Sorry for this naive post, Bush did it to them without the InstantWater.
