    As far as the well making water, just because the hole is filled with water does not mean that water will freely flow into the hole enough to sustain a pump. If the hole only fills at 1 GPM and...

    1" on the inlet is fine. Use whatever the inlet fitting is. Most jet pumps are 1.25" but it would not be impossible to get one that is 1".

    Drop a 2" line down in the well equipped with a foot valve and use a gasoline pump (trash pump) to test the well. If it will pump with the 2" pump then you can hook up the jet pump. My bet is that...

    I'm not sure I follow your logic. A "10 GPM Pump" will pump more or less than 10 gpm, depending on the head. You need to size your pump first for the flow you want at the head you need, then decide...

    Are you using the Grundfox SQ Flex pump? If not I would encourage you to look at it. If you're using a regular 3/4 HP motor you're wasting energy converting it from DC to AC. I haven't looked at...

    Why did you decide against the SQE? You trust him to drill the well and equip it but not on his pump of choice?

    Why are you using a booster pump and pumping the same water twice? Why not simply pump into one large pressure tank with one pump and be done with it?

    I don't understand why you would need to...

    We used to use blasting caps on plugged screens with great success. Once in awhile it would blow a hole in the screen or make an existing one worse.

    A 6" well here would be disappointing if it...

    I'm amazed at the number of people in my area who put a chlorinator on their well even though they don't need it. Some think all water needs to be chlorinated even after they have replaced all their...

    Is there any sand/sediment coming out? If you are pumping shallow well style you don't need the packer jet in the well. Swap to a single pipe shallow well set-up.

    Also I would drop some...

    It's pressure only as long as the pump can sustain prime. Once the hole gets bigger than the pump can handle it will no longer pump and then sand/sediment/shallow water will enter the casing. It...

    This is your key right here. There is probably a hole in the casing, letting in shallow water/sand/dirt, which is what made the water dirty. The sand that has entered the casing has locked the jet...

    It may be a goulds brand but it's made by ABB IIRC.

    This.

    At the very least pull the pump, drop in the chlorine so that it sinks to the bottom of the well and maybe even have the well inspected.

    Good luck.

    I replied via PM but since they are digging have them replace the pipes coming and going to the well with new ones since they are already digging.

    Pretty common to use 1" on subs around 10 gpm. Bigger than 12-15 GPM go 1.25.

    Yeah, only getting 60-70 years out of a tank. What a rip-off!!

    In all seriousness I bet you could probably install one through the side fitting. Would not be hard at all.
