Dad’s shallow well pump finally quit and we have also had trouble with it loosing prime due to decay in the well tip and screen. Rather than replace it, and still have only the low capacity shallow well, we hired Edwin Williams/Bay Water Well to install a 4″ casing with a submersible 25 GPM pump. He said it is about 65 feet deep.
Ed had installed the pump Dad had as well as the filter. The invoice we found said the filter was to neutralize the acidity in the water so the copper pipes would not be compromised.
