A driven point well is also often called a sand point well so they are the same thing. A driven point well is one that has a small diameter and is made by connecting diameter steel together in lengths of 1 1/4' or 2'. The steel pipe is put together with threaded couplings. At the bottom of the string of pipe there is a drive point well screen attached. A drive point well screen is most often two to three feet long and has a steel tip that is hardened.
