I have a question, with many more to follow, I am sure.... I have just bought a house and I have questions about my well and water system, but more on that in later posts.... I have no idea how old the well system is or how deep it is, which brings me to my first question. How can I tell the depth of the well?? The person we bought the house from doesn't know, and the original owner is dead, so there is no real way to find out who set it up originally. Is there some way I can tell how deep it is?? Maybe thru looking at the h/w that I have, or something as simple as dropping fishing line down the pipe to see distance from the water line to the top of the pipe? TIA for any help, and tks much for this forum, I am sure I will be back and forth for a while...
