    Shallow well pressure switch chattering

    I hate to bump this one back up guys but I need some more help. I was able to fine tune my switch last year with a combination of lowering the range switch as much as possible and raising the differential switch as high as possible. So the pump kicked on extra low and then shut off at pretty...

    Flapper style check valves

    In October of 2020 I installed a driven sand point well to irrigate my wife's mini orchard and my sweet corn patch on my shop property and hit water at 15 feet. I have a small pressure tank and a 3/4 hp shallow point pump on it. The pump originally used was used and started leaking in May of...

    Shallow well pressure switch chattering

    Last year I drove a 2" well point to service a single hose bibb. The primary purpose of that well is a drip irrigation system for 12 fruit trees and 18 blueberry plants. It also now serves about 250' of soaker hose for a sweet corn patch. The pump is a Red Lion RJS-75-PREM with the integrated...

    Priming a shallow pump on a driven well with a check valve

    I would assume the slot area should be sealed. There is 7.5' of pipe above the point section that is full of water. I'm currently trying to get my A/C vacuum pump hooked up to the prime port of the pump in hopes of using it to pull the initial water up the well.

    Priming a shallow pump on a driven well with a check valve

    Today I just got done driving a sand point into the ground at a property I have near my lake subdivision home. Water is about 15' below ground and the soil is pretty much 100% sand. My state of Wisconsin puts out a pamphlet on driving well points and I have basically mirrored one of their...

    An interesting septic root issue

    But if the roots are above the inlet pipe that then grow down into it I question if normal pellets are going to work if I just flush them like normal

    An interesting septic root issue

    Rural subdivision, built in 1995, PVC lines into a concrete tank. The roots of a nearby boxelder tree have started to cause issues with the septic system. Fine roots have grown through either the cracks in the riser sections, the lid of the tank or where the riser meets the tank. Regardless...

    Tips requested for driving a sand point. Mistakes were made.

    It definitely seems like that but the weird thing is that when installing the T posts for the fence around the garden, I literally just drop my driver once and the T post is 8 inches in the ground.

    Tips requested for driving a sand point. Mistakes were made.

    Long post: bring a sandwich. I have a property in my rural subdivision on which a single RV storage garage was built. I purchased it for the shop space and my farm girl wife has claimed the lot area for a small orchard area. From what I have been told the nearest clay vein is 10 miles away...

    Getting ready to install my first driven well

    I live in a Wisconsin rural subdivision on a manmade lake. The shop property that I bought just up the road from my house doesn't currently have any water service. It would be nice to have water in the shop for cleanup and assorted tasks but really I am planning to install a point well because...
