In 2018, we replaced the pool filter to the tune of 500.00 and This week almost a year later, we replaced the pool pump at $709.00.
Not Good news. Butt the good news is, both times We Had The Money, because it broke just before my minimum distribution check comes from my 401k. Last year the check also covered Fridge/Washer/Dryer.
Bad news is I was PLANNING on what I would spend in a couple of week, but the pump must run. Good news, really good news.
On Friday Am I called Pinch A Penny Pool Repair, aptly named because after they visit we are pinching pennies. Any Hoo. They said they would come on Monday, could not give me a time. at 11;30 my phone rang and PAP says, can we come now? our guy is in your area and finished early. YAY! come on down.
He arrived at 11:50 and the pump was in and he was gone at 12:07. It took him 17 minutes to install the pump.
I said hang on, I will get my credit card. His answer was.... "they will bill you, or you can call the office and handle it over the phone, we don't get involved with the payments" WOW!
GOOD NEWS was Early, In and Out and no fuss... I HATE WAITING. ITS DONE and I still have the money for a few days. ha ha
