    Geez, I hope you guys don't put me on your "ignore" list for posting this-you will all probably look at this and roll your eyes, but I thought I'd post pics of the screen rebuild I'm doing for the 5hp pump I asked about last week. :sleeping: I decided I would rather put it together @ home this weekend rather than have to spend extra time tomorrow on the property. I will attach it to about 20' of pipe and feed it back out in the lake tomorrow. Hope I do not fall into the lake. It sticks up like a fork underwater. That's how the old set up was and felt it was best to stick with that as it has worked for years. I also got a good pressure gauge and will hopefully stop that leak near the pressure switch.

    Slot openings?! There are supposed to be slot openings in this???:laugh:


    I just asked for 3" well screen and this is what my shop had-and it just happens to be the same as the old one. I did not know there were different sizes so I do not know what size they are-I'd say, "very tiny."

    Good job on the glueing. That is how I glue too.

    I didn't get it until I realized that BB is a girl :)

    BTW, I'm not doing those ad words, but I posted a way to remove them.

    I think that's very funny, but then again, I have laughed more than once reading some of your guys' posts.
