Water, Water, Everywhere
Water went out again last night. I emailed Mr Landlord (last time I inadvertantly rang him up in Hong Kong). These water troubles have been trying. We had a SCUBA diver here on Thursday and Saturday (he was VERY nice). He said things looked good down there and in response to my questioning said A) he had seen very big fishes and large crawfish on the dive to The End of Our Waterpipe, and B) the lake is very, very deep. He also sawed off a rusty pipe section and replaced it.
Mr. Landlord rang me this morning asking me about the circuit breakers (he thought the diver might've tripped them as he had received a shock when switching the pump on). I said we had water for hours after the diver left and that when I discovered the water was out I (as per long-standing instructions) turned off the two pump breakers so the water pump wouldn't burn up, but just to make him happy I'd turn them ON, check, and email the results (Results= no water).
The water always seems to go out on the weekend.
Update: MrLL has gone to bed and left me numbers to call to try to get a workman here to fix the problem.
I blame Candide as he was asking me about it yesterday (just joking!).
