The issue with aquafer impaction is that you don't know until it's too late. No undo. Plus, restricting the flow means that I'm chucking energy away.

The ideal situation when running a well, is that it doesn't shut off more than once a day. The start and stop and the fluctuating water levels in the bore are what wreck both pumps and wells.

And it may be fine. I've got neighbors who pump 50 gpm. But we are in a complex area geologically. We've got various levels of tilted sandstones, limestone, dolomite, and coal. So it's a bit of a crap shoot.
