Wichita Falls Texas, the well driller just finished. He drilled 31 feet to red-bed. He says I have a layer of water from 21 feet to 31 feet. He left a five inch casing. Will a one horse submersible pump with a capacity of 19 gallons a minute bring up enough water to irrigate 15 rows of gourds 350 feet long?

The well driller should have done a Draw Down Test to let you what the well can produse. They need to pump it to see if they can and when it starts to run dry. That way you realy know how much water you can draw out and at what GPM. My water well is 375 ft deep but the level of the water stays at 19 ft or so even pumping with a 1.5 hp pump at 25-28 GPM for 10+ hours at a time. If you are in a Aqufer you should have no problem if it is a seam feeding the well like mine you need to know what GPM it flows into the well casing. Mark H.

Only as fast as the well fills...

You don't have much storgae in a hole that shallow...Not much at all...

It all depends on how fast it flows back into the hole as it is pumped out...
