And I don't mean paying the annual water charge. We have the mains water for washing and general use and a deep well for drinking and cooking water. Recently the well pump seized, it was close to twenty years in use so it owes us nothing anyway, mains water tastes awful so we had no alternative but to buy large bottles of water for tea making and drinking.
I decided to avail of the opportunity to rebuild the pumphouse which includes a rewire job. Most of this work is done, we are waiting for the doors before calling in the plumber to install the replacement pump. I find the idea of buying water in Ireland to be completely crazy. It rains here almost as much as it does in Scotland.
