Getting Water from Stone

The plummer came and we now have a fix to our "lack of drain" problem.

They have fashioned a nice box/tray of sorts that the new water heater and new water softener sit in. There is a lovely little pump that will turn on if there is over 3/4" of water in there and a cute little alarm that will sound if hit by water. Sounds like a smoke detector.

When deciding on the water softener we wanted to see, just for chuckles and grins, exactly how HARD our water was. The test strip goes from 1 to 8. One being the softest and anything above a 4 being recommended for a water softener. Our water was an over achiever coming in at 7.5 or better.

It's amazing it has flowed at all!
