One guy puts down a 25-30 foot sand point and gets enough water. he shows you how to do it yourself. I think the whole thing cost him 300.00.
Now there are also failures in those video clips too. But I plan on at least 3 tries on my Acre of property next summer. I will use their Do it yoursel system too.
Check it out.

Albeit pulling a 200' sump pump is not easy at repair time.

I'm looking to drill a well on our 10-acre place to feed a series of ponds, but I don't want to get ripped off by a commercial driller. Anyone out there with advise? I'd love to know if there are any questions to ask or if there are resources I should be looking up first.
