    A turbine only making 70 gpm? The ones I have seen were 500 gpm or better. I have a place with a 5 hp sub that makes 70 gpm.

    as i type this the water is 15' below me http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/36183.html . a few years back for his wife's birthday my brother made a wishing well that functioned. he took a few 5' sections of 24" ads drain pipe and dug down to water by hand using the pipe to hold back the dirt as he dug.

    It doesn't matter if the guy has 1000 GPM well. Design the system right, correctly hydrozoned.
