The Well is finished (29Sep2008)

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

They finally finished drilling the well today so we have our water supply.

607 feet deep!!!!!!

But the flow rate is good and there should be no danger of poor quality water…

The bad new is that it’s just short of €10,000 PLUS

extra for the pump.

(I feel some Peckam Spring hitting the shelves soon to help fund it!!!)

Drilling for Water (25Sep2008)

Thursday, September 25th, 2008


Our First major expense – the well needs to be bored before building commences so that we can prove to the council it has sufficient flow rate and is fit for drinking. (one of the planning conditions). It all happened a little sudenly – I was expecting to wait two weeks but because of a cancellation they arrived yesterday and?áI only?ábooked it in the day before yesterday! Hope the mortgage money comes through quickly….too late to stop now…

They estimate a depth of 300-400 feet which should be about Ôé¼8000 all in with the pump etc.
