Gary and the Grandkids! - Orange Texas


Congratulations to Gary and the Grandkids in Orange, Texas for a successful well! 



Gary's well is 27 feet deep.  He has a standing water level of 15 feet.  With the above new pump, he reports an output of 7.8 galons per minute.  Gary enlisted some enthusiastic help in drilling his well.  Check it out!

Here, Gary has run a 3/4 inch pipe down beside his drillpipe to free it up.

Everybody loves free water!

It is hard to be serious with water at these prices!

That looks like a lot of GPM!
