Re: New water pump has been installed!

I spoke with Morgan a couple days ago and he showed me the new pump. He explained that because the new pump has 5 horsepower more than the old one that they planned to place it 5 meters deeper in the well shaft. He is hopeful that this will make more water consistently available to the pump. The old pump would have to shut down regularly as it had pumped all the water available to it and then restart again later. Every time this happens the pump motor needs to draw a lot of power to start up again which means more pesos for the electric bill. It also put a lot of strain on the 25 year old pump's motor so he was constantly worried that it would give up the ghost again at any moment. Thank you to everyone who stepped up and helped pay for this upgrade.
