    1/2 gpm is it worth casing

    The two guys drilling at work for a fairly big company called drill tech here, the main guy running the drill rig seems pretty young like late 20s. He said he would put casing on it, actually I’m looking out my window and they’re starting to put the casing in right now

    1/2 gpm is it worth casing

    Let me be more clear, here in my state you’re allowed one well up to 35 GPM for your house and you’re allowed another Stockwell, I think at the same GPM. The well that I’m using for the house is maybe a 10 GPM well, so I thought I would drill a Stockwell hoping to get better Gpm kind of for a...

    1/2 gpm is it worth casing

    I just drilled a 670 foot well, hit water at 560, stopped at 6:70, cost me about 10,000 bucks to drill this hole. The rating it at 1/2 GPM, the 4 1/2 inch plastic casing will cost me about 5000 bucks, is it worth casing and putting a pump in?

    Suddenly, well stops producing or impeller ?

    i don't know what is shutting it off,, a couple times, i don't even know if it is actually off as like i said, it wasn't sending any water but was still pulling 1.x amps on both legs. what i do is shut off the big throw switch, and turn it back on and it usually works,, but for increasingly...

    Suddenly, well stops producing or impeller ?

    if there was a hole in the pipe,, wouldn't the pump just keep running? mine keeps shutting off, in increasingly shorter increments of time, fist time it ran 5 hours,, then 3 hours, then 1 hour, it just ran for like 30 minutes yesterday

    Suddenly, well stops producing or impeller ?

    the submersible is not controlled by a pressure switch,, it is controlled electronically by some warwick control box which is connected to some rods in the tank that measure water height. as the water goes below a certain point, the control box sends power to the franklin well control box...

    Open discharge freeze protection selinoid and drain

    Well as you can see from a picture, i have come up with a idea to automatically fill up this tank via the existing riser. I have a jet pump 300 feet away from this tank that fills it up from an open discharge at the top. It’s a metal tank and there’s really no way to run a wire down to the...

    Slow start systems for 1 1/2 hp pump

    right, but Is there anything wrong with setting it up like this?, Where the submersible fills up the storage tank from the bottom and the jet pump also gets its water supply from the bottom?
