Submersible Pump down! Do YOU have a backup plan?

Yesterday I had the pleasure of talking with Dave from Minnesota. He lives in a rural area and depends on well water for his home water source. Dave, being a DIY-type of guy, is always trying to be prepared, especially for bad weather. He called Bison looking for a manual backup in case his submersible pump went out.
Turns out, Dave was just in time. We got this email from him this morning:
“Timing is everything – soon after I spoke to you, my submersible pump shut down. It may be an icing condition but it may be more significant than that too. I have a service person coming over in about an hour to make those assessments, but I sure am glad to have that Bison! I’ve been able to pressurize my water tank and keep water flowing through the faucets, toilets, showers etc. while waiting to get this submersible fixed. Thanks again….. -Dave”
Whether it’s the electricity, the weather, or the submersible pump itself, it’s always a smart idea to have a deep well pump for your emergency water access.

Company Provides Dependable Drinking Water

Are you looking to buy land in Maine to build an off grid, strategic location property?  Maine has some great properties for sale that will fit your needs.  There are a lot of criteria to consider but a few basics hit the top of the list.  Today, let’s just look at the basic need of drinking water.

After listening to the news about the California water shortage, I realize how blessed we are in Maine.  Being born and raised here, I do not remember a time we ever had to ration water.  The quality of drinking water in Maine is excellent.  Once in a while you may run into some higher mineral contents but nothing a filtration system can’t fix.

An Option for Back-Up Water Pumping

Last month Jerelyn and I enjoyed a four-day vacation in Maine—a combined trip to visit family, explore Acadia National Park, and go to the Common Ground Fair—my first visit there in two or three decades!

The highlight of the Common Ground fair for me was coming across a little company,Bison Pumps, based up near Fort Kent, Maine (in WAY northern Maine) that makes really slick hand pumps. These pumps are sort-of like the ones our grandparents used, but they’re built with much greater precision and work much better.
