ok guys i hand drilled a 1-1/4" 5ft pvc well point about 40ft into the ground. used air compressor and water to jet it down that far. worked great btw. once i hit sand layer figured should quit. not sure where my water level is, but i got a 1/3hp shallow well test pump on it now and its getting something like 7GPM. since its just the test pump im looking to upgrading it. would it be absolutely stupid to try using a sprinkler pump on it? i was thinking maybe trying a 1-1.5hp sprinkler pump at first and take it back if it doesn't work good. im well aware it may not produce enough but i want to test the limits, i want the most from my new well basically. give me some thoughts please and some advice. i want at least a 1hp jet pump. thanks!
