Thanks for all the tips guys!
I live in very low very flat Eastern Shore Maryland. Average rain from May 1st to today should be 4 or 5 inches....we've had 8 inches in that time.
I put a 1 1/4 x 36" well point down plus a 64 inch length of pipe added.
With 22 inches stuck out of the ground I reached a pretty tough firm piece of ground down there. So I looked down the pipe and there was water.
I have 52 inches of water in the pipe, topped out at 22" inches below the surface. How do I proceed, or monitor this situation? If I wanted to pump it out to water a very large garden, how do I determine the proper pump, and gallons per hour capability.
I'm dumbfounded. Plus I have 3 more sections of 5' pipe!
