They accepted our offer! Now it's our turn to get really busy!
The next step for us is getting the well water tested.
When I lived on a well many years ago, I was pretty casual about getting the water quality tested and verifying the capacity of the well. Fortunately, the purity was fine, thanks to a gigantic reverse-osmosis water purification system in the basement of that house.
Unfortunately, the RO unit gave one gallon of water for every three gallons processed...on a well that was not terribly productive. I fought with that whole system for the entire time I lived in that house.
THIS time, the bank will (sensibly) insist on a water purity test, and we've written a "capacity verification" as a condition of the sale. But...who knew that water testing is so persnickity? Maybe it's just the Snohomish County health department rules, but you have to take a water sample after 8 am and return in (in the special sample jar) before 9am the next morning! Who works on a schedule like that?
Well, me, apparently...if I want to get that water tested! Hmmmm.
