After I finished the piping I
needed to fill in the trenches. I didn't particularly want
to put clay back in so I bought some topsoil. I got Scotts Premium
Topsoil. After using it in this project and a subsequent one, I
wanted to look into it a little more. I was surprised by the
contents of this product. I have summarized my findings in
the video below.

Next it was time to have the
geothermal heat pump installed. I called my HVAC guy and told him I had
the site ready. I am very fortunate to have a very fine HVAC company
in my area. If you live anywhere near the Foley, Alabama area, you just
can't do better than Tim Courtright with American Air Heating and Air
Conditioning. Tim and Lee with American Air installed a Florida Heat Pump
unit. It works great!
I thought that would be the end of
the project. Just one problem - My well pump was
cycling on and off way too much. More about that in Part 4.
