In this Badge Bit, you will make a really deep hole in the ground. A hole that has water at the bottom of it. Let's make a deep well!
Here's a guy washing/jetting one:
And some guys washing one in the Phillipines:
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- create a deep well with a casing without a well drilling machine
- more than 35' deep
- more than 1/2 gpm of flow
Points awarded range from 10-20 points based on complexity and depth of the well. A relatively normal well digging experience will garner 12 points. Installing the well in the casing is a different BB.
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
- the location where the well will go
- the parts you're using to make the well
- the finished well pipe/casing in the ground
- video of at least 1/2 gallon per minute of flow
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! And this tiny ad too!
