    Hello. Searched the forum, but couldn't find an answer. My water well set up has an untreated hose bib for watering lawns before my water softener, and filters.

    New well point struck water...but ZERO gpm

    I am in northern Illinois and wanted to supplement my city water with an irrigation well. I decided to jet in a well point behind my house, since we live in a very marshy area and I know the water table is just a few feet down. I struck water about 6 feet down, and sunk the well point about 12...

    Ok guys, I've got a pretty normal problem, a slightly odd well, and a slightly odd idea I would like some feedback on. Plus a request for other ideas. My well: I have a 2' metal cased well 22' deep. So it's not a gallery well and it's not really a typical drilled well (at least for my area)...

    What Kind of Underground Water Storage Tank Is This?

    Hey guys, I'm working on finding a free flowing well that was dug on my property in the early 60s. One of the owners years and years back capped and buried it (no idea why). But according to the family who built it there is a well. So we start to dig. I started based on where I'd been told by...

    Best way to bleach/cleanse well?

    I just bought a house that was built in 1977. The water test showed violation levels of coliform bacteria in the well water (although no E. coli). I was told that bleaching the well and plumbing would likely resolve this issue. I understand that there are at least two general ways to do this -...

This concerns me as there is condensation at the top of the well that seems to me to be perilously close to causing electrical shorts. Is...
