    The simplest way to do what you want is to connect your supply line to the pump inlet and just turn the pump off....you don't need to do anything else. I have a travel trailer set up like this, with...

    A company called wellbuster makes a very nice device to stop a flowing well. Maybe you have a buried pressure tank...I've also seen systems like this where they put a small pressure tank at each...

    He should absolutely compare what all different drillers offer with their price. I'm sure that $2000 gets him nothing but a well.....everything else will be extra (that's certainly a fair price). ...

    You should talk to 2 or 3 drillers and see what they have to say; they will have the best local knowledge; If one is proposing a 120' well, he must know something because I wouldn't think you'd ever...

    I really can't say on a rock well, but we do it all the time on screened wells with good success. I might be a little concerned on a rock well with dislodging loose material around a fracture and...

    Bio fouling can completely plug a pump, or the fractures, or both. You need to have the pump pulled, and then determine which is the problem, the pump, the well, or both. That's the first step. ...

    It won't hurt the pump, but you'll be shorting yourself of water if you ever do need it. With the demands you've said, you don't need to put anything to restrict the flow with that pump and tank. ...
