Well Points

Well points are the cheapest form of natural water that you can get.

What is a well point?

A well point is made where there is sand. You can make a well point where there is clay or rocks or even lime. Well point is made with water that is forced through a pipe while it is been pushed downwards. The water forces the sand to the surface on the outside of the pipe. The people that do the well point look for a type of white sand. The moment the sand appears they stop. The next step is to lower a PVC pipe in the steel pipe. The steel pipe is then lifted out of the hole. The PVC pipe is then secured in the ground and a pump is then connected to the PVC pipe. The pump is then primed till the water flow from the pipe.

What is the difference between a well point and a borehole?

A well point pump is above the ground and a borehole pump is in the hole. The borehole has a sleeve and a well point doesn’t have one. The borehole pump can be removed and replaced in the hole. The well point pipe is fixed and once it is removed a new well point must be drilled.
