Art - Montverde, Florida

Congratulations to Art in Montverde Forida for a successful pitcher pump well!  Montverde is about 30 miles west of Orlando.





Art hit water at 14 feet and "drilled" to 24 feet.  He reports his water is a little milky but I think that will clear up over time as he pumps more water.

He built a handle that is a little stouter than the one I made.  Check it out below!

Pictured above are his handle, his wellhead, and his pitcher pump.  Pretty nice.


Here is a shot of Art as he finishes drilling his well.  This is a good feeling!


Below, Art furnishes a CAD drawing of both his wellpipes and his hand pump base.

At the risk of stating the obvious, Art is a talented fellow...
