Our house currently runs on a well system with pump etc. We have found out that over 12 years ago a meter for city water was installed out front and the water company says that the pipes were run from the meter to the house at that time and to access city water all we have to do is go pay a fee and they will turn it on. My question is that something is missing here... Am I going to have to have a plumber come out?? if I am running the whole house off a pump and well then how or where is there a shut off or how do i use the well for yard and animals and city for house?? something seems a little odd here and i cant be so lucky that they just turn it on and it works and the well works for outside?? any help??
