Jim - Shelby, Michigan

Congratulations to Jim in Shelby, Michigan a successful well!  Jim reports his well runs five sprinkler heads at once.  He is using it to replace his costly city water for  for watering the lawn.





JIm has four wells connected in parallel.  Each well is 30 feet deep.  Jim utilized the best technique for drilling in really sandy soil.  He put a smaller pipe inside his 2.00 inch pipe and used it to wash out sand from the bottom of the hole.  The sand and exhaust water came up in the space between the two pipes.  Take a look at the drilling pictures he sent!

Jim says the pipe can get pretty tall.  That is a 10 foot ladder!
