    So glad you won todays battle. We all know the war aint over. Only question is whats next? I've been poking every dime I find in a 2 liter soda bottle. After 4 years it still isn't quite full. Just not enough dimes found in the change (not sure why). Anyway... When I need that 5 to 7 hunerd to pay some younger fighters for those unknown battles... I'm half assed prepared. Soldier on my friend.

      The flat labor to replace the pump would have been 500. The pump I have is a 1HP. They normally run between 500-1200 depending on brand and whatnot. I know you can find them cheaper, but if I had to replace the pump, I only wanna do it once.

          Actually, what I ended up doing was paying off the few small balances on our credit cards. So now, we're ALMOST like being back at zero with the loan with the cards paid off, plus we got the well fixed. And we have a little bit left over so I can take Kitty to her favorite chinkese place to eat. lol

            Indeed. Sometimes it's just the anticipation of "what's next" that's for entertainment purposes. Dull life, huh?

            Call your home owners insurance agent and tell them that the pump failed due to a power surge, maybe you'll get lucky.
            A good friend is a full time well Guy here in MO his going rate to pull and replace a 1/2 hp well pump is $1500 to $2000

              I have a claim in, but they will deny it. It didn't even cost the deductible.

              Agreed. The way I see it, stay as far away from your insurance company as you can.
