It must not have posted, but I loaned my polesaw out today to a construction company here in Taylor and he's going to connect my generator in trade!

Well we were so very blessed. We never lost anything, power, water, nuthin'! YET!!

However, we're all electric and in the middle of nowhere... Had we lost power, we'd have been in a pickle! I have a small genny that I'd planned to run my well with, but I went to the barn to just fire it up and the little sucker just would not run dependably so I took the carb off and cleaned it up as best I could and it still did not run right... I hadn't used it in a couple years, but it was run dry of gas... I actually have 2 of them (Honda eu2000i's) and neither would run right...



That won't happen again! For the pump house I ordered 2 new carbs and gasket sets for the small gennys... Will be getting quotes on a properly sized Cumin's generator set for the house... Will also buy and install a good wood burning heater/stove... I'll have plan A and plan B before next Winter, and The generator set will be in before hurricane season starts... We've been out here for 5 years and have had excellent electrical service. We've never lost power really other than one time and they sent us a notice that power would be interrupted over a few day period for some maintenance... It was out maybe 1-2 hours total over that time... But having said that, I don't want to put myself in a situation where I have been this past week where if power had gone out, I had no way of running anything and no way of heating anything...

Iíve got a good bit of camping gear, and this has been my favorite little stove for non back packing usage. Kinda spendy, but awesome quality and works better than most.

https://jetboil.johnsonoutdoors.com/...s/halfgen?id=1


This works really well also, but not quite as portable. Iíve cooked on it plenty at home though. Both run off the $3-4 Coleman 1 lb canisters.

I think this was talked about earlier or another thread, but was thinking they were saying 1-1.5 hrs per gallon or more based on demand. Seems a 20# was only lasting a few hours.

I thought of getting a conversion kit, but at that usage I would need 100 tanks vs 30 gallons of gas. Prepper part says tanks store better than gas.

I was thinking it might not be real efficient on propane.

FWIW Iíve stored regular gas with ethanol for two years and no issue with stabil marine treatment in it (not on purpose).

We have a dual fuel 7500 that I run on propane, but have never had to run it long enough to empty a tank. I have a couple of 20lb & a 100lb on hand & planning on plumbing in to my 250 gallon tank if necessary.

I just wish our government would of had the foresight when they made this storm to be able to take care of me better. . I'm gonna look into the generator switch panel thingy mabob. Iv got a genny but it sucks running extension cords lol. Threw around the whole home generator idea but were in the sticks and on propane. The guy I spoke with said we would burn thru our 500 gallon tank in a few days? he may no of knew what he was talking about because his is on natural gas supply.

I was fairly well prepared. Had small generators and propane heaters with refillable bottles which were handy. I use ryobi tools due to their attachments that work well for no power situations. I have oil space heaters too.

Those wanting whole home generators, be mindful of size and brand. Do your research. Many companies are notorious for selling you too small of one, and not being reliable, I know of many who have one and didn't work. You can buy portable ones and have a plug wired on the outside of your house to the panel, and easily plug and play from a portable generator. You can also use that generator for many other things vs a whole home being used maybe 2 days a year if that on average.

I'm also no one has mentioned buying a new f150 hybrid with the 7kw generator option. I may buy a window unit too for summer time.

Are you not on a water well? The reason I ask is because the way you talk about your place it seems to be out. Away from town and normal city supplied utilities. If you are on a well and have a generator then you have all the water you need.

I'm on a hand dug shallow well about 30 feet deep. But have option for co-op water.

I also have an underground spring that I installed a ram pump on (but I'm sure that's frozen shut). But the hand dug well I can fit into because it's the size of a manhole. So I can and have thrown a 5 gallon bucket down to fetch water.
We don't drink that well water as it is silty. But we use it for everything else.

All I need is a generator and about 1kW worth of solar panels and we should be set.

On average a propane powered generator is going to use 2-3 gallons per hour depending on load. If you ran the generator 24 hours straight (which you probably won't) you would 50-70 gallons in a 24 hour period.

I would suggest at least three 100 lb. tanks. 100 lb tanks hold 23 gallons of propane. That would give you about 70 gallons.

https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...with-pol-valve

A better choice would be a 250 gallon tank which will hold about 210 gallons. I would also keep 30-50 gallons......or more..... of gasoline on hand as a back up to the propane and for your vehicles.

You can rent a propane tank from your propane distributor. Some propane companies supply the tank for free as long as you buy their propane. Our 500 gallon tank costs us $48.00 a year. The propane company does any maintenance or repair required.

I'm pulling all my buried water lines up, they are 1" pvc. Then I'm going to lay 2 3/8 tubing from pump house to living quarters inlet and insert my pex inside. Then I'll install a gas water heater in pump house that will be able to feed the tubing. If there is ever a inline freeze I'll run hot water through 2 3/8 tubing to get pex unfrozen, thus never having to repair another water line. Project starts tomorrow...

We installed PEX in our house 2016, had a couple issues with fittings in the 1st 6 months. I wasn't real sure about it until this freeze..... We have a well and had power about half the time. I left every faucet dripping including shower heads. We had zero issues with our pipes. Nothing to replace or repair! Everyone I know that had pvc has some kind of busted pipe. So I've been helping fix everyone elses pipes now!! Lol

If you are going to rework your lines just go deeper and bury them below the frost line. There are charts that tell what the frost line is thru out the country. Here in SE Iowa all water lines are buried a minimum of 4 feet deep.

Our service from the meter pit into the house is polyethylene pipe. The service hits the manifold then everything branches out in PEX. We ran everything.... including the main service in HDPE sleeves. If anything ever fails we can pull out the bad line and replace it.

Hopefully you didn't pay those prices because they're insane!

Yes it does.

NO! Wow! It was 2018, don't recall what I paid, I know for sure it wasn't $800+, that is insane.

Take advantage of the situation much? Good grief.

Don’t forget your cord for your transfer switch. I bought a 50 ft 50 amp cord 125/250 volt, 6 gage four wire. It’s made by Generac. I believe it cost me around $360.00 bucks. Got it long enough to keep my generator out of the elements. Power went on and off so used the generator and ran the fireplace on low at night so neighbors wouldn’t have to listen to generator all night as well as us. Then we busted a water line. I found the leak, cut the pvc and valved it off. Have water back now.
As I’ve stated before, we had an estimate on a whole house Generac 22k for 11,000.00. We’re going to revisit that and maybe install a smaller one.
