Broken casing in the well can be detrimental. It can cause the well to collapse, not being able to retrieve the pump or not be able to install a new pump. In this case I was able to pull the pump out and set a new one in. The break was well above the water level and no mud or water was coming in. To help extend the well pumps life, we installed a storage system. It also helps with the sulfur (rotten egg) smell that was coming from the well water.
I got the pleasure to work out at the Circuit of the Americas. I installed a booster pump system to boost the pressure from the main line for the new soccer field going in. It was A LOT of FUN, seeing all the different types of race cars practicing on the course.
I took down this windmill because they want to expand the house and needed it took down and the well plugged. Thankfully my trucks boom was just tall enough to get over it. The boom is 37 feet tall when extended all the way out.
We used a 160L15, which means it can move 160 gpm (gallons per minute) with a 15 horse power motor. We set that on 3” cert-a-lock pvc pipe. This was for irrigation on a ranch, so they can grow crops for the animals.
