Home Water Hide Away Well Part 1
Published on July 29, 2016

An instructional video of how to dig and develop a shallow well. We will be connecting a Dankoff Slow Pump to this well that has a static water level of 8 ft. There is approximately 1000 gallons of reserve in the gravel bed. Filter fabric covers the stone. We are getting a 9.5gpm recovery rate and we will be pumping at 2gpm to a 1100 gallon buried cistern.

  1. Normally love your videos but engine and equipment noise was awful.

  2. How'd you get the excavator? Did you rent it, or buy it? If you bought it, how much did it cost?

  3. Any idea when Part II with the slow pump will be published?  I am going to copy this design on my land in the spring!!! Thanks

  4. Is that really aquifer water, a spring or just ground water?

  5. It was great to watch but at times hard to hear what you were saying. A bit to much background noise.

  6. Is anyone else having problems with audio quality on this video? It is totally garbled for me.

  7. That is a great alternative well for a vegetable garden wtshtf imo, I would surely like to see and know more of what the filter consists of and the pump you installed.
    engineer 775 you are a awesome source for anything and everything about survival and I thank you for that.

  8. Great job E775! As always, very educational. I may have to try this on our farm.

  9. What dimension filter cloth did you use for that size hole and where is it available from? Thanks.

  12. Great vid except I could not hear what you were saying though most of it because of the back round noise!

    I really like this idea . 

    Good work . 

  14. hey you know you dont have spam us with the same stuff twice now.

  15. Where could I get a hand auger? 

  16. great video. .. I love the idea..

  17. A self refilling 1500 gallon water back up. Nice job!

  18. What would you recommend for a hand pump with good quality and long lasting time.

  20. Excellent work, Scott!  Keep it up.  My family is significantly better prepared for come-what-may because of your efforts.

  21. That's nice , good job. I think I would invest in a brass pitiless adapter, only just to remove the pump with a tee bar instead of
    Having to reach down and unscrew the union .
    But I like your pitiless , just saying if the coast is not a lot between the two , I would use a bras pitiless . Thanks again . 

  22. Great job as always!!
    You inspire me to no end with the projects you do. I've got to put something like that in at my property this fall.
    I think I'll use a standard pitless adapter though so it can be disconnected using a T pipe.
    Thanks again for sharing, you're a very talented man and you convey a lot of excellent information for all who view your channel.

  23. its called a well head. You can drive it into the ground without digging and make a shallow well.
