Hi All,

Well it's officially COLD here. and getting colder... 10 to 17 degrees right now.

I found a flaw with the Shurflo Extreme series water pumps.. They simply
don't like cold weather. Seems that the pressure sensor that tells the pump to speed up is faltering slightly. Takes either a long wait for it to recognize pressure loss or a swift rap with a hammer it wakes up.

It's too cold to be out there fiddling with changing pumps as far as I am concerned. My pliers froze almost instantly when I sprayed water on them
and this is inside the barn! So far nothing on board is iced up and once I get water flowing everything is fine.

My outside water supply is frozen all the way from the water softener to the barn.. Well did I say it was cold???

Anyone else trying to survive the cold?

Dave...

Our high yesterday was -31F, the arctic front sunk in a little further last night and it got cold, at 3AM on a trip to the potty it was down to -43F and dropping, I heard of a -54F on the otherside of town, right now it's -27F but they are calling for the teens this weekend.  When is the global warming getting here.
