Funny.

But I bet John has been getting all kinds of PMs asking him to close (oops, I mean delete) this completely canard-unrelated thread.

Sorry, that's the way it goes here.

So with tens of thousands of posts and thousands of threads and 3 or 4 deleted threads, "that's the way it goes here"

cmon mike, your little thread that was deleted was darn political!

No. It's a community of folks who have a common bond.

We have struck up a number of great friendships here. And while it may not be true for a few folks, friends do talk about things other than canards.We even make announcements of becoming parents, or grandparents. Do you talk to others at work ONLY about work related stuff?

We have a wealth of knowledge and other interests here. I'd be a shame not to be able to ask advise of another if it were possible they could help. Maybe I'd like to sink my own wellpoint to be used for lawn irrigation (which I do want to do) and someone here has done it before. But I can't ask because it might offend someone? Because it's not canard related? BS!

Agree mplafleur, but politics, sex and religion must knot enter in.

Wells fall into acceptable categories of discourse.

should maybe i start a new category?

I actually have done that up at my cottage Mike!! I could not get the point more than 23' down although it DID get water!!! It was a 2" point. I ended up having a well drilled for potable water. The DIY well would have been suitable for irrigation had I decided to keep it open.

That's great. I now know someone who's done this. I'm getting a 2" wellpoint from a friend. I was actually planning on driving this inside the garage. I can use the ceiling height to my advantage by setting up a pulley system that I can use to let fall a lead weighted pipe onto the pipe to drive.

OK Mike. I drilled a hole with a 6" ice auger adding 5' extensions as I got deeper. Its a lot easier to get as far as you can this way instead of pounding it down. I was able to get to 14' this way, then the water came and i could not go deeper without the walls caving in. I then hooked up a 2" trash pump to the well pipe and blasted the rest of the way down with high pressure water and that was as deep as I could go. I was using 2" PVC pipe and could not pound it as one would with steel pipe. I know why u want to do it now. Friends of mine who live near you told me tonight they pay on average $300+ every other month for their sewer/water. I'll take my well and septic anyday. Good luck!

Mike says its okay to run a garden hose down the street to my lawn.

Dave,
Were you drilling sand mix at your cottage? You know we have a lot of clay here. Will the auger work in clay or will Mike be spinning around the garage with legs a flyin'?

I'll post hole dig as far as I can go; maybe 5 feet. Then I'll start with the sections of galvanized pipe with the wellpoint.

Here's what I used. I removed the auger handle and welded on a 3/4" npt coupling to the end to accept the 5' extensions. Then I made a "tee" for the top to turn with out of a 2' piece of 3/4" pipe and another coupling welded to the center of that. . The drill flutes did a GREAT job of holding the spoils as I lifted it out to empty. Like I said, it worked as planned until the sand got so wet that it would not stay on the flutes as I lifted the assembly out, but by then, I had hit water, so for irragation purposes, it was good. The first 6' or so was solid clay. It worked better and easier than any post hole digger I ever used!
