Dug Well In Garden. Cleaned
Completed another well clean yesterday. Removed the old rusted pipe work and cleaned the walls down.
The brick lining was a few meters in depth rested straight on to Wadhurst Clay Formation Rock. The rock continued another 5 meters.
At the bottom once we pumped all the water out of the well we found a major aquifer. We used 2 pumps to bring the level down and then with one pump we were able to just keep on top of the incoming spring flow. With a meter we worked out it was incoming at 14 liters in 35 seconds. That is a very good water flow from a hand dug well.
The next stage will be installing a hand water pump to fill an old trough.
