JD reviewed all the typical methods of building a well and decided upon a simple and cost effective approach. His idea was to line the well with plastic barrel drums and allow the ground water to natural seep in through the spaces between each barrels.
Sounded simple. We had the boys start digging.
We needed the well to be 4 meters deep but as the water was to be found at 2 meters deep we encountered a problem. So, we went in search of a guy with a pump. Once that was rigged up, with duct tape and a whole lot of ingenuity, we were back at work. The pump would pull the water out of the well to allow us enough time to remove some more dirt and drive the barrels deeper to line the well.
Next year we will install a permanent pump, some plumbing and we will have running water and a flushing toilet.
Next order of business...a structure to house all of this potential infrastructure.
