Max - Fort Myers, Florida


Congratulations to Max in Lakewook Park, Florida for a successful well.  Lakewook Park is near Fort Pierce, Florida and Max reports he is about five miles inland from the intercoastal waterway.


Max reports he hit water a 3.5 feet and continued to 14 feet.  He said after that his drillpipe kept getting stuck.  He put a pitcher pump on his well and now has a source of water during the frequent power outages his area experiences.



Max bought a home water testing kit and reports that the test indicated his water was safe to drink.  If you do this please consider getting your water professionally tested before you drink it.
