Hand Dug Water Well Sample/Display model
OK yes I have been bored over the holiday season.
Although not an accurate depiction of a well system, hydrology or the geology and the builder was no master brick layer at least it kept me busy for a few hours and kids loved helping.
Below ground the well bricks are not usually mortared but simply placed on top of each other but I had no alternative to keep it altogether. I will redo with a hot glue gun when I get a spare half hour next.
first stage the aquifer.
second stage the usual elm or oak support beams to support a well pump or old pipe. lead or galvanized pipe.
last stage ground level and above ground level well head. I even have a bucket not shown.
