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.

Think Your Well Pump Is Broken? What To Know

If you have a home that runs water with a well and you are suddenly noticing higher utility cost and lack of water pressure, the problem could be your well pump. You will want to have a well specialist come to the property to investigate what is going on with the well and the water system and to see what repairs or replacement options are needed. Here are some of the possibilities that could be causing the water concerns and signs that your well pump is broken. 

Higher Electrical Bills

Higher electrical bills indicate that the pump could be running more than it needs to, and this would cause an increase in your electrical expenses. If there are no other reasons around the home that the electrical bill would suddenly be much higher, and you think that the pump is always running, see if this is the culprit and fix the pump so you can stop the unnecessary expenses and electricity waste.

Flooded Yard 

A yard that has a problem with the well pump and the back flow of water from the well can cause flooding all throughout the property. If this water floods, it can cause damage to your home and the foundation. Find out the cause of the flooding and get treatment for the pump and lawn if necessary. 

Poor Water Pressure 

If water pressure in the home is lacking, the problem could be that there are problems with the pump. The pump may not be pushing water into the pump as quickly as what's needed, so you aren't getting a full hot water tank or enough water fast enough. The toilets may also not fill up very quickly after they have been flushed and instead water gradually trickles in. 

If you don't know a lot about water wells and water pumps, and these are some of the problems that you are having, you want to get in contact with the professionals right away. You don't want to pay for high electrical bills, worry about water damage around the home, or deal with water problems inside the house because you have a broken well pump that needs repaired or replaced. While you have the professionals at your house, you will want to have them inspect the entire well in case there are any other flaws that need to be taken care of at the time the well pump is repaired.
