    I haven't been on here since June of last year, asking about help with installing a point well. Well I used all the information that was given to me, and it worked out terrific. I was able to core a hole through my basement floor and pound a 1 1/4" point 13 feet down and get great water flow. After "developing" the well like many of you had suggested, I was able to get rid of all sand and silt that I can see. I've been using the point for about 2 months now for watering my lawn and garden, and it's worked great. I hooked it up to a 3/4 hp jet pump then into a 35 gal precharged tank, and it cycles around 3 min and takes about 2 min to fill up the tank again, at full blast. So to those of you who helped me, it's much appreciated.
