[QUOTE=Some Sprinkler Guy;3678037]I do a bunch of stuff on wells but normally they are wells that have used a lot of water via hose watering or they have other irrigation.

I normally just make sure my flow is good by matching whats there, or opening the supply line with a valve and getting the pump running and holding a certain pressure at a certain flow.

As far as well recharge and capacity there is no end on that one.
You could put a system in spring and the well could go dry in summer.

IMO thats hardly your problem. If I suspect the well has low flow I will inform the HO though.[/QUOTE

i can just see a lawsuit if after spending $10 or so grand on a system and 3-1/2 hrs into a water day the pump starts to cavitate, owner wakes up, jumps in shower and shamwow! (getthatnogoodoneeyedesumbitchoutherenow,marybeth)
but you are right justin, winter and summer can be night and day.
