About 2 years ago we built some new layer houses for chicks. When the well was drilled I requested for the casing to be pushed down as deep as possible. The well is 380 ft deep with a delivery of about 85 gallons a minute or so I was told. I also requested for the pump to be put about 30 ft. from the bottom. He didnt do that, he put it about 200 ft down. The problem I have is cloudy or almost muddy water. It was a contract well but would have paid extra to have the pump lower. I believe I am getting to much surface water as the pump pulls heavy in the summer time when hot. I have 2 tanks, dont know the volume, about 5 ft high and as big as a 55 gallon drum. I also dont believe he put in enoug casing. He seems to think the pump will pull more muddy at the bottom. This is the second time he has done this to me and the last time. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. NOT the third time. What do you think, am I wrong? Not sure about pump size but I think 3 H.P.
