That is great news, Daniel! Maybe you've hit your low for the year and are on your way back up. Maybe that BH had something to do with it!

Bypassed my hometown & went to Elizabethtown to Master's Supply where they handle well pumps/parts to get my capacitors. Turns out it was the starting cap, and for sure because it was leaking oil. Anyway, the counter guy said they didn't have it in stock & would take a couple days to get, special order. They don't stock much in well pump parts these days because most people have city water now. Well crap I figured.....then the customer at the end of the counter spoke up saying he had what I needed. He had the same 3/4hp submersible problem after the last storm, and because of the shortage of parts, he ordered capacitors, and a complete control box just to be sure he got his pump going. He got his capacitors first, so he still had the complete box, AND he had it with him, and the receipt and just wanted his $74.05 back. I said "SOLD"!!!!!!!!!!!! My well is back up & running! Finally a bit of good luck!

Daniel there is a small possibility that your HVAC man could have helped you out. I know I stock capacitors of different sizes on my truck, one of them might have held you for a short while. As it is, you've got the correct part and I hope you've forgotten what a capacitor is before you need another one :rofl2: .

Glad you're getting some rain Kenny. When you get enough just send it south.

Howard, I had a cap that likely would have served well, but it would not fit inside the control box, and I didn't want to rig something up inside my son's home, where the control box & bladder tank are located. The guy I bought the control box from had checked with every business around for the proper cap, and no luck at any of them. His cousin Williard is an HVAC man & he didn't have it either. The physical size of the cap is the problem.

Boy, lots of stuff going on in the last few days Daniel. Sounds like your dads AC got zapped by a power surge. We got an inch or more of rain Tuesday night and maybe another 1/4" or so forecast for tomorrow. Local farmers were on the radio today predicting about a 25% drop in yields due to lack of rain. Not nearly as dry or hot here as down south. A news report also came up with a bunch of predicted price hikes for different consumer food products as a result of the dry spell. It was somewhere between 3 and 5% for pretty much everything.

We're seeing about 1/3 drop in silage tonnage in this field we're in now.

10* cooler today than the last few days! But the 2/tenths" of rain last night raised the humidity, cooler, but sweaty! Forecast is for a slight drop in temperature & small chance of rain the next few days, I sure hope so! ~~ Lowell

Storms coming through, and a loud pop right in my face. Lightning took out my TV box that my computer monitor sits on top of. My antennae TV in the kitchen has no signal either, so either the TV tuner got took out, or the antennae booster got fried. My daughter's TV upstairs got it's speakers killed, and I don't know what else at this point. Somehow this Lenovo computer never missed a beat!

Sorry to hear about the lightning strike Dan.
Hope you get more rain out of it at least.

$1000 deductible, so anything dead is a loss up to a grand worth.

Several years ago lightning took out half the stuff in my house! Clothes dryer, projection TV, stereo, every telephone, and all little plug in power sources like battery chargers & the like & more.
