Power and gas to new house

Project by PaBull posted 2027 days ago 1888 views 0 times favorited 8 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This is going back to May of 2006. We were bringing in electric, water and gas to the new house to be build. The other thing that we needed to put in the ground was the 8” water line for the fire hydrant. I was not happy with this, it was an expense I was not counting on.

PaBull,

Discounting the unexpected things we run into with house building and other projects, it is always exciting to see things moving along with a project. Hoping you will never need to use that 8” hydrant.

Thanks Dalec, absolutely never want to use that hydrant. (other than relieving myself once in a while)

that’s what we get for living away from the grid. Plus it seams the kids loved the digging of the trench.

that hydrant may pay off sometime down the road . it will come in handy in case of a fire .

What are you talking about MrT, I don’t want that thing to pay off. And I do not want a fire. There is no water pressure coming out of the thing; there is one along the street about 300’ away. I even offered to build an in-ground swimming pool right by the house instead, but that did not fly either.

They will not even let me fill the dogs water bowl out of this thing, but I am getting a bill for $18 every month from the Water District. Sore subject, sorry.
