.....blood pressure returning to near normal....phew!!




Two days cleaning up our yard and storing outside art (projectiles), and all going smooth.

I was filling up a few medium to small sized plastic trash cans with irrigation water when the pump started to hiccup and spit! It's been a couple years since we needed any service, but here we were on the countdown of a major hurricane and our pump quit working. UGH!

In this case, a few solid wraps to the control box with my first seemed to shake it back into action. A sticky solenoid I presume. But tonight? Why of all times??
