Water well
[Return to Topics]

I'm about to have water well dug here in North Texas, Wichita Falls. The well driller say he should hit water at about 25 feet and he will drill to 45 feet to ensure a supply of water. Appearently that's normal for the area that I'm drilling. I'm about a half mile north of the Little Wichita River. He is going to leave a five inch casing. I'm planning on using a submersiable pump and I plan to irrigate about 1 acre next year. How big of a pump should I get?

That all depends on what your well will put out. You need a draw down test done first. Then figure what you need for Gals Per Min output and pressure needed to over come pipe resistance and irrigation system GPM needed. Then if you have enough water in the well, size the pump to your needs plus a little extra. Mark H.
