    That's the rumor and I slept in late. The coolish temperatures are going away fast.

    Comes out of the same aquifer. I realize it's chlorinated but that's OK. Cost wise a well won't compare. Over the past 12 years I have paid abt $6,000 for water. Around here that won't even get a well drilled much less pay for the electricity to run it over 12 years. Just makes sense to me.

    I'll take a natural source of water over treated water anyday, and I don't buy that over time city water is cheaper.

    If you add vitamin C to chlorinated water. It chemically converts it. 500mg tablet per 10 gallons. Throw in a tablet in cooking water, plant water, and drinking water. You can over do the vitamin C to make sure all the chlorine is converted. A cheap bottle of 500mg tabs at family dollar runs about $3.50.

    Very little, it only runs to fill the reservoir tank, so it would depend on usage. 1/2 hp motors don't take a lot of power to run.

    We have used well water ever since I moved in to our place in Aug. 1977. Our original well was 66’ deep but when you pumped out too much, it had to recover. Drilled a new well that’s 125’ about 30’ away and no volume restrictions but it has a mild sulfur smell, so we filter what we drink. I would NEVER use a public water supply unless it was forced on me.

    In Oklahoma, land owners have rights to 2 acre feet of water per acre of owned surface land.

    I have a separate Electric Service and Meter on the well.

    Cost: ~$17/month (months before freezing temperatures).

    Cost: December, January and part of February) ~$100/month when using an electric heater in the Well House. I used to use a 75 watt incandescent light bulb. It worked and it was cheaper, but my Wife feels more secure with the heater.

    The pump is a 1/2 hp, 220VAC, Stainless Steel Submersible made by Grundfaus selected because the Motor Controls and Starting Capacitor are external (up in the Well House). Starting Capacitors have a higher failure rate than other components and Grundfaus’ design allows replacement without pulling up the pump from 120’ down the hole.

    Waterline Length: (pump to well house to home) is 1” PEX buried about 2’. The total length of waterline is about 500’.

    On our place I’ve used both Jet Pumps and Submersible Pumps, but I’ve also repaired the Lift Pump on my Wife’s family’s Cattle Ranch a few times. By a wide margin of advantages, I recommend a good Submersible System. If you are considering having a well drilled, I also recommend having it ‘Cased’ all the way to the bottom as a precaution against a cave in. It costs more, but once it’s paid for you’ll forget about the difference.....

    Ask and ye shall recieve:green:

    We are coming to the end of the story line on the trail. Have a couple of "finish line" pics for tommorrow.

    Full sized and able to get with it. Knockin out 20-25 a day with no problems. No pad problems, no muscular problems. She has taken a couple of tumbles off small ledges and took some knocks but learned kwick and her skills as a mountain goat are improving exponentially everyday at this point. She doesnt actually carry much of anything in her pack so as not to load her juvenile frame. Maybe a lead or such. Its mainly on her for the harness/Chase-can-carry-you safety capabilities of it. She is around
    4-5 months old right now.

    Must be mornin....grumpy Chase

    Basically from working on it. Any work done whether new or rehab is going to introduce some level of contamination into the well and it needs to be gotten rid of. (<__short version)




    Close...many many aquifers. On costs??? YMMV for sure.




    I make water for everybody. The thread has morphed to your private residential well.

    My elec bill is around 15,000 a month.




    If you leave it exposed to the air it will dissapate in around 24-36 hours.




    Yaaa....and mine are 40hp and 75hp. Both are line shaft turbines.




    MmmHmm...private wells. Mine are in the 550-600 foot range.



    I make the best water available anywhere and am proud of my work...

    ...that being said, I understand EXACTLY what your saying (Flint).
