Not sure if that is the right term but we were having work done on the yard and it seems the water line from the well to the house was not where it was supposed to be.
Long story short, I have a mud pit and no water in the house. We have shut the well off but I guess we have a high water table (?) and we still have a hole full of water. We can't get anyone to come out until Monday.
I have heard 2 things from the plumbers I have spoken to:
1) get a trash/mud pump and keep it running to empty the hole, keep it running to keep it empty and replace a section of the line.
2) replacing a section (coupling?) is not a good idea and over the course of a year or two, mud will enter the line and the water supply so I should have a new line run from the well to the house.
For option 2 the guy who was working on the line can do the digging but I don't know exactly where the line is, obviously. Is it a better idea to replace the whole line and will I also need to run new electric? I'm afraid we'll work on getting the water line up and hit the electric also. I don't even know how much of a real possibility that is but I didn't real think putting up a swing set for my kids would lead to having no water this weekend, so what do I know?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
