Exploring The World Of Handcrafted Furniture Construction

Hi there! The name is Nicky and I'm here to present the fascinating world of furniture construction to you. Modern furniture comes from a long line of handcrafted items that have recently fallen out of favor. I grew up in a quirky household where we created all of our own furniture by hand. I have fond memories of shaping wood on the lathe for table and couch legs before I could even ride a bike. Today I continue to create furniture using all of the skills I learned from my awesome parents. I would like to share the knowledge I've collected over the years with you to help expand this interesting hobby. My main goal is to see handmade furniture secure its place in the marketplace. I hope you learn all you need to know about techniques, tools and building materials to create signature pieces you'll love for lifetime.

No Water? Well Problems That Could Be The Cause

When you turn on a faucet in your home and nothing happens, it is a cause for concern. You might wonder if something is blocking the pipes or, if it's winter, wonder if the pipes have started to freeze over. However, there could actually be a problem with your backyard well that could be causing your water to stop flowing the way it should. Here are some things that could be happening with the well.  

Not Enough Water Inside the Well

One of the reasons water isn't flowing from the faucets might be that there is not enough water inside your well. Most well pumps need to be completely covered with water in order to pump effectively. If the water inside the well becomes too low, the pump is uncovered and start to pump air.

Typically, the reason for inadequate water inside a well is that the well itself is too shallow and needs to be deepened. You may need to contact a well services company to drill deeper into the ground.  

The Well Walls are Too Weak

Another reason you are having a problem with your water could be that the walls of the well itself have collapsed, allowing soil to rush into the well chamber and soak up all the water. Collapse of the well walls could happen for a number of reasons; your well might have been put in the wrong place and needs to be moved, or the walls were not installed correctly. The walls will have to be put up again and the soil must be dug out of the well chamber in order for your well to function properly again.

The Well Pump is Not Strong Enough

Without realizing it, you might have made a number of changes in your house that have affected how effective your well pump can be. If you have recently installed a new toilet, sink or sprinkler system, for example, your water usage might have gone up a great deal and the well pump might not be able to supply what you need. You may just need a stronger pump so that it is able to keep up with your usage.

Armed with this information, you should now have a better understanding of what's happening with the well in your backyard and how it might be causing the lack of water inside your home. Ask a neighborhood well services company (such as J. A. Schwall Well & Pump Service Inc) to come to your home, make an assessment and fix the problem right away.
