Drill Your Own Well And Save Lots Of Money!

There are different types of wells and in our area the type of well that is used is called a sand point.

A sand point is a shallow water source well that is no more than 25 feet deep. They are used in areas where the ground is sandy and soft. There is very little equipment necessary to instal one and this makes them very economical.

Ours took about 30 minutes to instal the well itself and then about 30-40 minutes to instal the pump and pressure tank.

Once everything was hooked up we then built a small temporary pump house to cover everything and keep it out of the weather until we build a permanent housing once we have the well hooked up to the house once it is built.

For now we are happy to not be hauling water any more and have a hose running off of the pump to supply our RV.

We took a sample down to our local county department and had the water tested to be sure that it is safe for drinking and registered our well with the county. The registration is required by the county regulations in order for us to get our building permit. You will want to checkout the local rules and regs in your area should you decide to put a well in yourself.

Here are our affiliate links for the Pressure Tank and the Pump that we used on our well. And as always if you order thru our Amazon links we get a small compensation and we really appreciate your support!! 🙂

Here is a video that I did showing you the entire process from start to finish.
