    This is the ancient one talking, but a small spudder will drill a 100' well in bottomland in a day, incl pea gravel, running galvanized casing and setting the pump. Me and Grandpa! Greatest job I ever had.

    I knew a woman years ago, lived in Pauls Valley across from the RR Station.

    Her husband drilled her well in the backyard, back in the 60s. 2" pipe with a sand bit, hand pounded down 18'.
    She was still getting water from it in the late 1980s, when I met her.

    That sounds akin to how they do it in the Sandhills of Nebraska. Drive a pipe with holes in it down until water comes out! Wish it would be so easy for me.

    If you seek out drillers, might give
    Bobby Faulks Well Services out of Hollis, OK a call. Same owner has drilled thousands of wells over the 63 years he's been drilling.

    Here's one on Ebay but I don't know... There are many other water well drilling rigs but this one is a classic!

    If you’re concerned about ground water contamination, the county health or OCC should be able to help you out.
    Drilling is usually easy or almost impossible.

    @Cowcatcher if that sells for $7200 bucks I think we need to go into business selling drilling rigs.

    Shovel repairing and water drilling kinda go hand n hand.
