No? Not recently? Hmmm......no, the freezer is still (At The Moment, anyway) working - even the icemaker! However....while I have ice, and lots of it, the dispenser WON'T deliver. (It's been this way since the repairman came out). And my commenter - Mr.

No? Not recently? Hmmm......no, the freezer is still (At The Moment, anyway) working - even the icemaker! However....while I have ice, and lots of it, the dispenser WON'T deliver. (It's been this way since the repairman came out). And my commenter - Mr. <lj-user="searscares">? Has NEVER responded to my challenge of giving me a phone number to call. To, y'know, actually PROVE he's with Sears and not some scam artist. Figures.

Oh, and my pool company is now on my list. For the past..oh, year or so, the owner has made disparaging remarks about my pool. You know, stuff like "Oh, you have an ENTRY Level pool. *WE* don't sell those" :sniff: and "Well, WE won't sell *that* - we have Quality stuff here". When we needed the new liner, it took them almost a month to give me a quote - around $600 for a PLAIN liner. I hit eBay and got a 25 mil liner (just like the quote) with a PATTERN for......$289. *Big* difference.

Now? The pump is making noise - sort of a high-pitched whine. I called *last* week - they came out yesterday. They didn't call me - they left a note saying my pump motor needed to be replaced. No price quote, no call us for a quote, no Nothing.....

I did some very quick checking. I currently have a 1 HP pump with a 19" sand filter (the pool guy said it was "too small" for my set up. Not according the place I bought it from). I found a 2 HP pump - new - for $100. If I want to replace the whole shebang, I can get a 2HP pump with 19" sand filter on eBay for $270 - and $25 shipping. So.....call it $300 to replace everything.

We'll be calling the pool company today or tomorrow, just to see what they say. I'm betting it'll be over $300.....just a guess. (Yes, we're talking about changing...but we're kinda limited out in the country. :sigh:)

Anyway, that's my news. I have lunch with Sweet Geek today - that's good! :grin:
