We are not sure if out last post went through or not so here it is again:
Update on deep well hand pump: We found a used Baker/Monitor deep well hand pump ($150 including cylinder)......really lucked out. With a little sanding, paint and new leathers it looks just like new. Our well driller hand no problem at all putting both the hand pump cylinder (three inch wide cast) and the submersible pump in the six inch casing. The driller found water at 90 feet, drilled to 120 and the static water level came up to 30 feet. The hand pump works like a dream. The well driller is figuring this well can produce about 120 gallons per minute. Sure wish we had this good a well at home rather than at the cabin! Veronica
