28. Great idea for a pump cover.
Edited on Fri Oct-17-08 12:41 PM by Dover

I have a friend with a small acreage and a well. She was showing me around and pointed to a
small boulder and said, "And there's the pump". I looked at her puzzled and we walked over to it.
She then lifted the 'boulder' to reveal that it was fake and hollow. It was the cover for her
pump! She had insulated it on the inside (she had sprayed insulation onto the walls of the inside).
Anyway, I just thought that was brilliant. Very accessible, light weight, natural looking, AND it
provided the pump with all the protection it needed.

Her other pump equipment was in a separate place (I can't remember what it's called...maybe a pressure pump?) that held about 30 gallons at a time.
She had built a small shed to protect it and the electrical switches for it, and had a heat lamp in there for the occasional freeze.
I guess they didn't make fake boulders big enough to cover that... :P
