Feeling the Pressure

We hope we solved our water pressure problems.  Our electrician friends, Dymr and Volodya, told us that people in the city are installing small pressure systems, hooked up the city water lines.  They cut in when the pressure drops.  They gave us the name of a man who put one in his apartment on the 9th floor and now has water AND pressure.  He came and installed ours.  $250 for pump and parts and $50 for the work.  We rigged a separate line for the garden so the water doesn't go through our filter system.  And we put a second meter on it which was approved by Natasha from the Water Dept. yesterday morning.

  1. Looks similar to a smaller version of a farm pressure system.

  2. Glad you've got something that works for you (in the water department, that is).

  3. DC, that is exactly what it is.
    RB, reminds me of the municipality that was debating putting a bridge over a small stream. One old counselor was adamantly opposed to spending the money. They had forded it for years and it was too small to put a bridge over. "The trickle of water is so puny I can urinate halfway across it". "Mike, you are out of order". "Your damned right I am out of order or I could urinate all the way across it".

  4. Those old country counsellors and their profound but earthy wisdom.

    Reminds me of another story, about leaving an acre of land to the Devil. You probably know it, so I won't waste your space re-telling it.
