Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 4” cylinder
  • 2” drop pipe
  • 3/8” metal sucker rod
  • wood or fiberglass sucker rod (optional)
  • rod guides (optional)

He personally was able to achieve 5 gallons in 30 seconds in 10 strokes. However he is in his 50s so a younger and fitter man could pump as much as 20 to 30 gallons per minute.

The well is currently at 80 feet in depth, however Darren believes his well is capable of pumping water from as deep as 500 feet.
