What’s needed to get the water running in your home temporarily while you wait on the technician?
1. A friendly Neighbor
2. A double female hose connector from a washing machine
3. A water hose to reach the span of your outside hose bib to your neighbor’s
Turn off the circuit breaker to your pump or unplug your pump. (Please let In Line Inc. know that you have done this.) You will need to hook the garden hose to a hose bib on one of the houses and connect the double female washing machine hose to the other end of the garden hose. Next, hook the connector to the hose bib or spigot on the other home. Lastly, open the spigots on both homes slowly to begin flowing water from your neighbor’s home. Once you are hooked up and the water pressure has equalized, you will be able to use your water as normal, including your hot water heater, icemaker and the like. One thing to be aware of is that your water pressure may be decreased since you now have one water source supplying two homes.
