    Stupid question maybe

    But why are 4 inch wells drilled as apposed to 2 inch, especially when there is a pressure tank involved?

    If there is a large pressure/reserve tank avail at most homes than why the need of the larger borehole which I understand adds a little to the reserve of water within the casing.

    U.S typically dosent have large families like used too

    Ive noticed that 2 inch deep well submersible pumps so rare here in the U.S

    I understand that it all comes down to recovery rate but unless I'm mistaken there have been alot of 2 wells drilled in the past.

    I dont see why a 2 inch wouldn't produce 5 gpm or more?
