Oh my freakin' god!

We live in units (sort of like condo's) and my landlord and I share a yard and a water pump. The water pump stopped working 2 weeks ago. I told landlord to hire someone to fix it and we can split the costs. He said no, he would fix it himself. 2 weeks later, we're still waiting.

So when we need water (for showers and stuff) we have to rig the pump (which takes 30 fucking minutes) and it doesn't last long. When I am outside working in the yard I keep a bucket of water out there so I can wash my hands. I wash my hands a lot, after I touch soil, dig holes, and play with the dog.

Landlord's daughter has a habit of coming into my yard and dumping the water out. Sometimes it is because her toddler (landlord's granddaughter) likes to play in the water. So I put up high. And she is still dumping it out. I swear to god, like x70 times a day she dumps the bucket out.

I have said something to her but she doesn't seem to be getting it. I put a giant sign on the bucket telling her to keep her paws off.

He won't pay it and I only have the money for half.

He's the landlord and therefore is OBLIGATED to pay for it if he can't fix it.

Landlords HAVE to have running water in apartments. It's not optional.  Hire a repairman, pay it, and deduct the entire amount from the rent.

Do you have a legal lease with him? If so, he is legally required to make repairs in a timely fashion. 2 weeks is not timley, I'd say something to him.
