Living in our new house

Dirty water from our water-tap

Since a few months we are living in a new place, a new house, in North Thailand. It is a bungalow with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. It is very cheap for only 3.000 Thai baht per month. The house has connection to the public water system of the village. And here is a bit of a problem. It works perfect and there is good power. But when it rains the water gets dirty. Actually just mud water. Now we are not the only people with that problem, like our neighbours. Well when it rains they switch to their own water-well that they have in their garden. And luckily it are friendly neighbours as the solution for our problem is that we buy a water-pump and install that at their water-well and connect that to our water system at our house.

So yesterday morning we went to a local shop to buy a water-pump. We just bought a cheap pump as we are planning to move to our own (to be build) house next year. An Lucky PRO MQS136B for 2.670 Thai baht. Including free installation (excl. materials of course). Well free installation, I just saw the same pump at Lazada for 1.999 Thai baht. Never mind, within 1 hours people came to install the pump and connect it to the water-well of the neighbours. So now we have nice clean water again. With a total costs of 3.485 Thai baht that means the rental fee just became a little bit more.

Minor update :
Heavy rain last night has proven that the water-well of the neighbours is not as good as they told us. It is much better as the village water system but still not clean.
