    Be careful had a close call at the property yesterday luckily the neighbors saw it and called the fire department. Nothing lost but brush thankfully

    That’s one way to clear some land without a permit ;). Glad it wasn’t worse

    Pretty sure the drillers did when they cut the casing and welded the flanges on top. I hadn't been out there since Tuesday. They finished up Thursday so guessing some slag or something landed in the right spot and smoldered for a day

    Be sure to send them a thank you card with a 8x10 full color photo of their work.

    They should know better in this weather, dry period as I assume they do it for a living.

    Glad it wasn't worse Josh.

    Someone farted in the woods over here and it burnt 200 acres. I'm glad you didn't get too much damage out there. FireWise your property so that even if a fire occurs, it is confined.

    How deep did you have to go and how much water from the bail test?

    100' and 6 gpm. Might have to put a resevoir system in but I'd rather do that then gamble on them drilling to the next water table at 49 a ft

    $49.00 per foot! Wow!!! That’s crazy! You might need to buy a drill rig! Down here we pay $17.00-$21.00 per foot.... the steel casing is extra, but you only need to case so far depending on soil and other wells in the area...

    Bummer. That's a pretty low yield. The well log will tell you what the draw down was and if the level stabilized once they started pumping. If it didn't stabilize, you might have a situation where the water table you are drawing from is being fed from a location that is higher than your hole and draining through the earth to your location.

    If the well is 100 feet deep and the pump is set at say, 86 feet (ten feet of screen plus a little height above it) and the static is at 60 feet, you have 26 feet of water above the pump before you start it. If, when you start the pump, the water drops and stabilizes at 70 feet, you have 16 feet of water above your pump which is OK. if it draws down to 80 feet to deliver that 6 gpm, you have little room for safety to protect your pump from running itself out of water.

    Reservoir + the booster pump needed + ass pain, will add a lot to the price. Not to mention that over the life of the well, you will use more electricity and WHEN the power goes out at your house, you will need more generator power to run both pumps.

    Have you taken a look at the total cost of your system? Since they just pulled off the hole, they can come back and continue. If a well has been sitting for a few years and you decide you want to go deeper, just about no one will put their gear back in the hole, even if they drilled it for risk of the casing/welds failing. They certainly won't go for sloppy seconds on someone else's hole, that's for sure.

    If the company has drilled a lot of wells in the area, they should have a good sense of how far you might have to go to get 15 or more gpm. Well depths vary an incredible amount here.There are no guarantees, but as expensive as it is, you might want to go down that road now or suffer a lifetime of water problems. Once it is done, it is done.

    100'? SO you got into the S'klallam aquafer that I hit at 100-120. We perfed the pipe and kept going. I finally hit the Suquamish aquafer at 360 and the flood gates opened. But that was 15 years ago when it was cheap to drill. I feel bad pumping so much water out of the ground though......not.

    Good points but the wellsvout here are around a 100 or 400. The price of a reservoir system is about 2k more vs 15k in drilling I will take what we have.

    Exactly the next table will be around 400 and I'm not gonna pay for it unless I have to. I'll stick with the sklallam water

    You’ve got tons of water at 6....... the average home without irrigation uses around 125 gallons of water per day.... you likely don’t even need a tank and all the extra potential that can go wrong with that unless your going to use a lot of water.

    I had 5 acres with 2 horses and did fine on a 2 gpm well with a 2000 gallon storage tank. The tank was always full, filling up while we slept, while at work, etc.....

    Your 6 gpm well will produce 8-9000 gallons per day if it does not diminish. If that was the air test by the well driller and not a flow test you may even have more than they estimated. Their test hold water back...

    Anyhow! Congrats and a nice shallow well!

    Ya they are doing the pump test today so we might end up with more flow. Kitsap make you use a reservoir system if you can't get 7gpm
