Santo Tomas has drinkable well water....costs $25 a month ,
Roberto refresh my compass, the guard shack would be north and the beach would be west?Water supply to the east side of Las Conchas has gotten worse in the past few days . Water trucks rumble by very frequently and I am near the end of the peninsula. No info on the rest of the town.
We have a floating disconnect switch in our tank. It is connected to an electric cable which is anchored to the foot-valve pipe. As the water level drops the float hangs down becoming inverted at one point which shuts off the power to the pump. It has saved our pump several times and the pump never loses prime. Once the water level in the tank rises the float comes up and the power is restored. Concerning your water theft issue, we replaced our hose bibs with the ones that require a key to turn on. No more problems.Some considerable improvement. Not available all day but keeping the tanks up.
Workers at neighboring house tapped one tank dry twice. Pressure dropped so pressure switch shut off the pump saving the motor but lost prime twice. Was not sure what was happening till they left a hose bib on the beachside open after pumping the tank dry. Forgot to close the hose bib. After priming the second time, Pump was not picking up pressure properly till I saw water flooding off the deck. I'll speak to the owners when they come to town. Workers are doing some planting along the beach.
Unless you are using a good volume routinely I would be concerned about stagnation and algae growth in the tanks. An occasional flushing would prolly be a good idea.Nothing worse than not being able to flush a toilet or 3, I got tired of that shit (pun intended) dug a hole, put in a huge tank in addition to my other 2. Can't see it and I can hold 2000 gallons now.
Senor por favor keep us current with water concerns, everyone that has a pump and city water needs to check tank when we have a leak.Water supply to the east side of Las Conchas has gotten worse in the past few days .
