Unhappy Pressure Well Tank

I need a new one of these things in my ancient home I just bought. It's a big blue tank with rust all over it. This one is running constantly and leaking. How much does it cost to replace one and who does it? Do I call a plumber for this? No clue where to begin.

Ugh. And I just had the washing machine repair due out today. $300 for that one. *sigh*

I would think a plumber, not sure if they are easy enough to install on your own....some of it would depend upon how heavy it is. You can get them at Lowes/HD, I wonder if they'll install, too? Looks like they run in the $200 range?

It just never ends for me. I went from one Money Pit house, to this ancient 1933 money pit. When do I get a break?

The very day before the well tank died, I had a plumber out to fix my leaking washing machine. A hose is on order at the moment. Turns out the same company could fix the well tank. I got on some sort of frequent flyer program and it waives the initial visit fee.

The washer was like $250 and the tank $450. At least we have water now! Have had to do laundry at a laundromat though. Man, it's been years since I had to do that!

So every time I get my credit cards paid down a bit, something else happens. I had JUST enough for these two repairs...and then...

DD hits a car. Oh not just ANY car. A rich b**** in a BMW SUV. Her daddy called me and he's going to take the little scratch into his "guy" and let me know how much it costs. I pray I have the money. Once I pay THAT off (DD doesn't have a job and that's a DIFFERENT topic), I have to fix the busted out light on my ancient Honda that got smashed.

WHEN do I get a freaking break?!?!

Aw I'm sorry. Seems like it is constant! The positive here is you had the card paid down enough to get the fixes....I guess it is the positive
