Re: Here is my well water install
Just as a comparison, here in Winter Springs (20 miles North East of Orlando), I have a well for my irrigation system. I am at 38 feet with an 8' slotted/screened well point. I have a 2.5 HP Myers centrifugal pump. I have a fairly large lot and there is enough water at 38 feet to cover the entire property in three zones.
Years ago, I lived in Orange County, South of Orlando, and the water table was only 15 feet down.
Since the municipal water company adds sewer charges to every drop of water used, this well has saved me thousands of dollars over the years.
