SUCCESS STORY!

Paul - Port Charlotte, Florida

Congratulations to Paul of Port Charlotte, Florida on a Successful well!!   Paul has an unusual drilling situation in that he can only drill 11 feet.  At that depth he hits a layer of dried seashell that he can not penetrate.  Fortunately he has a very high standing water level.  He put down three sand points, each 25 inches long and connected them in parallel.  He reports 6.5 to 7 GPM at 20 psi.  Pretty crafty, Paul!

 

Thanks again to Bill in Tampa (on the menu as Another Home Driller!!), for his assistance to Paul on this project.
