My pump room, is a little room in the basement where the pump for my well is. It also has my water heater. The room itself is tiny. It’s almost a crawl space, because it is about half the height of the rest of the basement. At the top, there is a tiny window about 4x10. The window is basically open. There is no way to close it except to put a board over it.
That is what I want to do. I want to just nail it shut, because I don’t see any reason for it. My well froze up last night, and I don’t want to waste electricity on the heating or have my pipes freeze again.
But they must have put it there for a reason. It make so little sense, that there has to be a reason for it. Why would you just open all of your main pipes to the risk of freezing for nothing.
Can I close this off without causing an unexpected problem?
