There is a 3/4" spigot on a post next to the well, with a 100lb pressure release valve above the hose connect (in case the hose gets shut off). We connect a hose to this spigot and turn the well on and off at the breaker. We normally get about 5GMP out of the well.
I think somebody failed at math. I doubt that pump can produce 100 PSI if the water level drops anywhere near 400 feet so that PRV will not save the pump from deadheading. A pump should not be set below its deadhead level without a good pumpsaver or cycle sensor to protect it.I just checked, and the pump is actually 400' down, not 300'.
