I buy bottled spring water and haul it in. I hate to do it, because of the plastic bottles and the cost. But the well water is pretty awful, hard with iron and other minerals. I'm sure it would be fine if the water softener worked, but that's sat broken for at least 8 years, 3 years before I moved in, and will probably never be fixed.
What's really annoying is the pump is on my meter, which means means I'm paying for the water for 3 people next door. I don't think it's the pump, but as soon as they moved in, my electricity bills stopped making sense. There was another couple in there when I moved in, and I had normal bills. They moved out and the house next door was vacant for 3 months, and my bills were really low for those three months. Then the current neighbor moved in, and my electric bills have been high ever since. One year they went through the roof. This neighbor plugged in a 600W dock light at the dock, and left it running day and night. When I figured out those outlets were on my meter, I would cut the breaker when he went to sleep. One night he woke up late and saw the light was off, and freaked out on me. I left the breaker off ever since, but over those 7 months that damn light cost me over $200 in electricity. But cutting that breaker still didn't solve the mystery, my bills are still high. It's a tiny home, the bills should be small. I suspect but haven't yet determined that it's possible the separated garage is on my meter, and maybe he has things plugged in there that are costing me.
The property owner is very nice, I really like him. but because I can't afford to live anywhere else, if I try to resolve this through him, I fear I'll be evicted. I have already tried and his wife, the property manager, wants to kill the messenger. Total loon. Maybe it is just the pump. The neighbor is the worst kind of resource hog. The night he moved in he left his sink water running for 6 hours for no reason. He just forgot it was on. In the summer, he'll leave a hose running for days, weeks, sapping the water pressure. He's inconsiderate, dishonest, oblivious. The less interaction with him the better.
