I hear that, it will be fenced off. Wells in my area are 60-100 ft deep, drilling is $22 per ft with a 5" casing. What am I missing?backhoeboogie":16uhe2q7 said:Just the well cost me over $12,000. I am reading you're spending $1800 for the delivery system, from the link. $2,200 for the well?
It doesn't sound bad but I have a lot of questions. I have no idea how deep you are drilling etc.
You need a fence or barrier to protect your equipment and piping system. Calves will be curious. They love to chew wires.

Around here most cisterns are 2000 to 2500 gal concrete "boxes", usually made for septic tanks, and are delivered and there is a hole in the top w/ concrete lid, so that a person can get into it; like a square manhole cover I guess. We put in a cistern at a house that didn't have a well and had water delivered by truck.
Looking good. Which model is that? And how do you like it on cloudy days?Saddlebronc":2mh0a6ex said:I have two solar pump setups on my place, from the good folks at http://www.solarpumps.com/, in Weatherford, OK. Would be happy to answer any questions you have. My wells are 200-240 feet deep, with static water levels in th 70 foot range, so I hung my pumps around 100 ft. Here is a picture of my second setup, which had cost-share support from NRCS.
The ditch on the far side is for a water line that gravity feeds two other tanks, the farthest about 900 ft away. Everything works like a charm; very happy with the setup.
Thanks...it's their N250RP2 system (http://solarpumps.com/products/complete-systems/n250rp2-1350-gpd), which is preconfigured to meet NRCS spec...and was approved with no issues.RanchMan90":2iph8e7w said:Looking good. Which model is that? And how do you like it on cloudy days?
