Any of those would be a bit expense for a DIYer.

I'm on the northend and I jetted my own well by hand with water pressure to bore a 20 ft. well using 2" pipe & 4' wellpoint. I got water! cost me around $150 bucks

Been there done that. One of my friends got in contact with him for the third or forth time and he said he was all ready to do our well about 3 weeks before Thanksgiving. He said he'd have it done no problem before that weekend. We tried staying in touch to see what was going on and to make sure it was done so we could bring money out for him and of course couldn't get ahold of him. When we did get out there he filled the tank but no well. He hasn't been back since and we tried calling but nothing so we'll give it another try ourselves instead of wasting any more time.

Well

I feel the same way. Just do it yourself!
Its easy.
Some of you may think a bit of hard work is out of the question though.
Did mine myself with a pump and Budwiser.

A friend of mine knows the guys who does wells out there. If you cant get at least one or two other people who want wells the same day as you get yours, it will be cheaper.
Not trying to discourage, you but as far as doing it yourself, my friends tried that and they were not successful. It can be done but it ain't easy.

Reply or email me if you want their number.

I made a post on this last year. It does not take too much effort if you do your homework and talk to others that have done there own wells. The basic rule in SE is 18 - 21 feet depending on your site.

Not sure if that was a shot at the amount of work we are willing to put into out camp hopefully not. We tried putting in a well twice and failed, it's not all that easy. That was after listening to a lot of people on how to do it. Thankfully we got someone to do it for us and we were very grateful as we had tons of rebuilding after most of our camp burnt to the ground. I lost my F350, utility trailer and two campers/decks from our camp and got everything replace and rebuilt in 3 months.

Don't give up at 21 feet, mine was 23 and my neighbor went to 27' in one day and gave up that night. The next morning we said, "hell, let's put the last 2 feet of pipe in the ground anyway" and poof, water at 29 feet! Great water I might add.

You can PM "Got-Grizz" and he can put one in for you, or call me and I will hook you up. He is one of the guys that put the one in at the All Jacked Up Camp.
