I'm planning an irrigation well. I need some advice.

Most of the wells in my area are 6' - 30' deep.

The ground is very easy to wash. I tested it out with a 10' section of 1" PVC pipe with the garden hose attached to it. It basically fell into the ground, all I had to do was guide it.

How do I know when it's deep enough, or if i've reached water?

What type of pump?

What size and type pipe?

What kind of well point should I get?
