If your water table is 20 feet deep or less, then you can install a shallow well to create a water source for your property. Check with your local building department to see if there are any regulations that apply to a shallow well and secure any required permits, then select a site that is no less than 100 feet away from any possible source of water contamination, like a septic tank. Dig a hole about six inches in diameter and about three feet deep to get started. Make sure that there is no water or gas piping or electrical conduit where you are digging.
Place the tip of your well point at the bottom of the hole you created and then, using a sledgehammer, drive it until the well point is fully buried and the galvanized pipe attached to it extends a foot above ground level. When you purchase your galvanized pipe, make sure that you get the correct size to match the threaded opening on the hand pump you plan to use. As you drill downward, keep attaching new lengths of pipe to it while making sure that the pipe is truly vertical. Once you reach the water table, keep going until you are five feet into it. This is important as the water table can vary depending on weather and climate conditions. Plunge a long pole inside the galvanized pipe to get rid of any rocks and sand from it. Use your garden hose to run water into the piping to make sure that you get everything out.
Add a final section of galvanized pipe so that it extends above ground level, then add a base to it to support a cistern hand pump. Refer to the manufacturer's manual for instructions for installing the pump. Complete the installation and pump test water out until it runs free and clear of silt or any other matter.
