Hi Shill,Thought we might

Hi Shill,

Thought we might have a discussion about fear or worry.

Next time I'll try and post a more complete thought.

"thanks for posting the link, care to share your insight?  I am sure that if you found it important enough to post up you could kick off discussion with a bit of your own material"

I could just post my discussion however they may run counter to what you intended.  If I don't know your thoughts then I could end up threadcrapping unintentionally.

Having gotten this far though I see myself as just another forum contributor (ie not a cop) so here's my thoughts:

Pump failures are an anticipated and expected event.  There is a mechanical concept called Mean Time Between Failure or MTBF.  So a pump failure in and of itself while worrisome is also anticipated and will have redundancy, back-up, or other mitigation present.  

The pump failure doesn't worry me much at all.   Should another system fail at the same time I might worry some.

This article says to me:  Something expected and fairly normal happened and at this time is being dealt with in the normal way.  It sucks however we did design for this unfortunate event to take place.
