In a private area, its own water source is of great importance. Having a well in its use, it is possible to organize an independent water supply not only at home, but also throughout the territory.
A well, which is planned to be built and equipped, would be a more economical option compared to the involvement of specialists for the equipment of an independent source of water at the site. It is a well of small diameter reaching the aquifer. The equipment for such a pit is not only its organization, but also preparation for subsequent use:
Selecting a location for the well
The main task in the organization of the well will be the question of searching for an aquifer in the territory. There are several options for finding a place to drill a hole in the ground. Some are based on actual terrain data: maps showing exactly where groundwater lies. Others - on observations of plants, as well as natural phenomena. The willow twigs method is used no less often.
Depending on some natural phenomena, as well as on the results of the site inspection, it can be approximately assumed at what depth the aquifer lies. This determines the choice of the necessary equipment for the production of wells for water.
After determining the final location, you need to decide exactly how the well will be made to water. The most effective method of organizing an independent source at the site is drilling. For independent performance of such works it is possible to use both a small-sized drilling rig, which has a small weight, and suitable for use even by a non-professional, and a homemade tool - a hand drill. The choice of instrument depends on the depth of the aquifer.
The garden auger is a bar with the possibility of its lengthening, at the end of which are cutting items. They loosen the soil, allowing more freely to pick it up with a spiral plate located on the rod after the cutting elements.

Equipment for the well
Well water needs not only its initial organization, but also the subsequent equipment for use. This means that the walls of the hole need to be strengthened with pipes so that access to the aquifer is not only unimpeded, but also as clean as possible without the inclusion of soil elements.
Construction of a well for obtaining clean water
Rules for the location of a pipe in a well:
After equipping the well with a pipe, you need to think about the rise of water from depth to surface.The most successful way would be to use a submersible pump directly into the aquifer and holding hoses from it to feed both to the house and to the irrigation tank at the site. The power of the submersible pump is pre-calculated based on the height at which water will be supplied.
