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…
