Ep28 here, and its time to find some water for our Boiler Room!
Dunno why you put that pump so close to the water, you could have put it just under the room and the well pipe would extend down through a shaft.
As far as the water/oil well problem, create an advanced pump for BC that would have a filter option to let you select what type of liquid it would pump out, but with a much smaller area if you filter it.
oh, and check out these two “mods”
adds a mob ID display with health info + flying damage numbers
adds an armor HUD, meant for IC2 powered armor but it can work with any armor and doesn’t need IC2 at all
I find both handy
