As I chronicled here, we lost water on Wednesday morning and ‘Epping Well & Pump‘, to my sincere gratitude, got us up and running within a couple of hours — he problem having been a worn-out pressure switch. That was great. They, however, were quite adamant that I should replace my pressure tank, ASAP (then and there, if possible), for $1,250. I wanted a couple of days to think about it, especially as it had been an expensive and painful 6-weeks. First we needed a new boiler and then 4-days later I busted my knee and required expensive surgery.
I learnt a lot when we needed the boiler replaced. Chief among them was the benefit of talking to multiple folks and getting multiple perspectives, opinions and prices. And I am so glad that I did. We got the Biasi B10/5 boiler installed for nearly 1/2 the price of the first quite we got — and that was from the oil company I had used for 20-years and were supposedly my friends.
So, I decided to make a few calls. They were interesting and illuminating.
I called ‘Gilford Well‘ and, luckily, ended up speaking with Normal Harris III, though I did not know he was the President and co-owner at the time.
I asked him if he could please come over and give us some prices. He volunteered to come by the next morning. And he did.
Class act. I was impressed. Very forthright and helpful. I was blown away.
I had called upon the services of Gilford Well a long time ago — close to 20-years ago. This was when I lived in Gilford. I need a well drilled! It wasn’t a new house. It was a lakefront house that was getting water directly from the lake. There were issues with that and a well was the right way to proceed. Gilford Well got us up and running. But, being out in Alton I had not thought about calling them.
I am sure glad I did. Sure glad that I got to meet Norman. That was a pleasure and a honor.
Yes, I am sure I will be doing business with them — when I have a need. SMILE. Did you get that?
It is good to know that we still have companies such as ‘Gilford Well’ around.
Made my day. Thank YOU, Norman.
