Paying Corraplata for no water

DR Solar

Corraplata once asked us if we had a well during our little fight with them. We told them to check in S.D. main water dept. to see find if we had filed our papers and payments.
They never returned.
Clarification. There is/was a main water office in S.D. that you could apply for a well drilling permit and pay yearly fees.

This cut out us dealing directly with Corraplata and put the information burden on them.

We have never admitted to having a well. Nor did we say that we had a permit.

Just for Corraplata to check with the main office in S.D.

Hmmmm, never really thought of that....

Our pump is somewhere in the well and we have no way of getting to it until it fails, so I don't know its power rating. Buying a tinaco and having it plumbed and installed should be around 10k pesos? I'm guessing. The question then becomes would that be too much strain for the pump. I don't know how to find that out. I don't want to make the pump fail prematurely.
If your pump is in the well it's a submersible and I'd bet even money it would have no problem getting water up to a tinaco even if it was a second or third story.
The bigger the better for the tinaco.
