Thread: driving a point

  1. #1

    Default driving a point

    What is the best type of point and pump set up to use/ Here in this area of michigan it is common to have regular wells around 35' deep and have excellent water flow, so i figure a point will have to be around the same depth. is this to deep for a shallow well pump set up?

    It doesn't depend on how deep the point goes; it depends on how far the water is below the surface after you hit water.

    You could ask your neighbors if they are successfully using a shallow well pump.

    The usual shallow well pump limit is considered to be 25 ft to water, although the theoretical limit is more than 30 ft. You gain some if you put the pump in a full basement, which is pretty common in residential construction in Michigan.

    I have seen flowing wells in Michigan where the water flows out of the pipe at the surface.
