Too much water, too little water
It’s rained almost non-stop now for two days.
The ground squelches underfoot.
Yesterday a thin line of water oozed under the seal of the kitchen window.
The water level in the swimming pool, high to start with in order to prime the pump, rose so high I had to empty some out.
The top of the GPL tank, which is situated so that it acts like a sump, needed bailing out – I filled nine buckets.
So in all this super-abundance of water, the taps run dry – twice: last night and again this morning.
According to the Water Company technician, an actuator needs replacing.
