24: Water Pump
I also made the decision to add a pump to the well, which will insure that the flow of water is always consistent. The pump allows me to dial up the pressure if I ever want or need to—like when I have house guests and everyone is showering while we're also running the dishwasher or the washing machine. So far, I've never changed it. The set-up in the basement is very easy to access, and Oak Tree Homes recommended I turn off the pump and close the water intake line from the well whenever I'm going to be away from home for more than a few days. As Mark explained, it's just a good idea to insure that I don't return from being away for an extended period to find that something happened with a toilet or an appliance (things do happen) and the pump kept working away flooding the house for days.
