Saturday afternoon I got a call from my friend and business partner Nicole. She had no water! The well that supplies her house also supplied water to the house next door. Well the house next door no longer has power so she no longer has water.
Her landlord was busy and did not have an electrician on call for emergencies. So she called me knowing that I have an electrician’s license.
I studied the system for a bit and figured out that we could run a temporary extension cord to the well house and get water.
Today I went back and ran a new service from the landlords workshop to the well house. This involved digging a trench and adding a new breaker to his breaker box.
After a few hours work, we had a permanent solution to the lack of power situation. Nicole now has water again and a much more reliable power source for her well pump.
