I pulled the well point up and the area of the slits on the well point was mostly full of silt. That seems to be the problem.
How do I deal with this situation? Do I install a casing then put well point in and fill casing with gravel or what? Pump out hole with mudhog?
I think the well needs some developing. I would do what speedbump said and go at it with a pitcher pump. If you drop the prime here and there while developing it will loosen up any kind of silt that has built up around the screen alowing you to pull it back through once you start pumping again.
