    I plan to wire a normally closed float switch to the well power supply so if a pipe lets go it will shut down the pump. I have been searching for a switch that can handle the amperage but i havent found one yet, I think I am going to have to use a relay.

    I would schedule a quiet discussion with code-savvy electricians, even if you can't do it locally. There is something about below-grade power connections that looks hinky to me, even if you would be willing to bet the ranch that the water could never rise to their level.

    Today we dripped all theses pines, cedars, shads, and bayberries at the guest house. They laid another round of sod today too, all fescue. Last week we had to replace 200' of 2" PVC main and decoder wire because they decided to plant 60 cedar trees on top of it.

    Curling always looked like a pastime that goes hand-in-hand with heavy drinking :drinkup:

    my first view of it on a Canadian cable channel sent me into fits of laughter, watching grown men furiously sweeping in front of a stone teakettle moving ever so deliberately along a rink
