I performed a flow test on this horizontal well and found it ran somewhere between 6-8 gpm. The only problem was that the water coming out of this well had a very strong odor of sulfur (rotten eggs). I'm not sure why this would be but maybe it has something to do with it sitting unused for 20 years?
I'm thinking of using this well to fill a 5000 gal tank and use that tank for irrigation water around my new home.
- Any thoughts on the sulfur odor?
- Does using this for irrigation seem like a smart idea?
- Would running a small pressure tank and jet pump to feed the irrigation system be more economical than running my 10hp vert turbine well to feed the same irrigation system?
