    Aha, thank you! I think that’s the one you said you had a reaction to, and I boasted that I must not be allergic to it.

    And with that I will do everyone a favor and remove the pic.

    I don't recall anyone complaining when @UPSed posted a pic of his rash, and then when I posted a pic of mine?

    Go ahead, restore that pic! :laugh:

    Sorry I have been pretty much MIA as of late. Crazy work schedule, and exciting late breaking news that my water well has once again taken a dump. Meaning I have no inside the house water and. 5000 gallon storage tank of remaining water at 3 outside spickets. So this means outside showers on the front porch using a hose.
    This also means I may not be riding Saturday thus the breach in priorities.
    Here is a current pic of our porch shower, good times!

    Nothing at all wrong with that setup. Unless you're a morning showerer...

    Protip: Every off-grid water household needs a backup SunShower (or Dromedary bag with shower head attached). If it's morning, boil a half gallon on the stove. You could go years with nothing more. ;)

    Reads like you're running off gravity fed surplus water only "yikes". Sun-shower at Big-5 for now. Buckets of water near the Loo for emergency flush's. Pump=? Something wrong 100'ft deep=? Broken pipe=? I'm not a well guy, but I am a plumber with a good network of people for well questions. you know how to reach me. Ps, fun fact. The NASA bldg (if you work there) where they built SOPHIA. I walked 20 miles plumbing in their remodeled bathroom's, lunchroom's. Call me if you need me.

    Looks to be pump failure at this time... Electrical is my guess and pretty sure I need to pull the pump.

    We do have a travel trailer I can go load with water and heat the shower. Still living in the lap of American luxury compared to others, right?

    Thanks Brothah!
    So far I got this. Not really hard to pull a well pump especially if it is a PVC drop. But I certainly will let you know if I do. Thanks!

    Well sheesh, then! I'd have the fresh water tank, propane and batteries topped off at all times for future catastrophes. You prolly still have it winterized now. Get your guest house ready for summer company :)

    @Mikie
    Ooh sorry Mikie! I grew up on well water and remember the problems that can come with having one!
    But the minerals you’re getting are well worth the hassle right!:thumbsup:
