went camping this past week,dry camping. first night we are outside in the screen room eating dinner and my wife says she heres running water, me being a smart ass answers with a "we are at the beach" remark. well the check ball in the city water fill popped out. so water was pumping out, no big deal i just shut the pump off headed into town and picked up a brass fitting....garden hose male to pipe thread with a pipe thread cap and teflon tape. one more thing to carry along in the tool box. i could have hooke dthe hose up and pinched the line with a vise grip if no stores were open. rest of the week was spotless. just thought i would share.
