    We Have Water!!!

    It's not much, but we have water. Clean, clear water at 226 feet flowing at about 3 gallons a minute. We are going to pipe it in so the water runs into our current holding tank. That way we won't loose any water pressure and the well pump only has to kick in when the holding tank gets low.

    I was running errands when the driller called me. I burst into tears in the middle of the bank! I am just so relieved that this wasn't a very expensive mistake!

    220 was bedrock. We actually went and talked to retired driller last night (The guy who trained our driller). He said he'd never gone deeper than 160 for bedrock in our area before! He thinks the problem was that we live on the highest point in our subdivision(which isn't all that high really!)--gives us a great view, but apparently not so great for other things.

    The holding tank about 900 US gallons. Right now we can make that last 2 weeks.
