Hello, new guy here looking for advice and /or where I can start to find info about wells and household water. I have never had experience with private water supply.
We just purchased some property in Long Beach, Wa. The entire peninsula is very sandy, no rocks to be found. We need to drill a well and someone mentioned we may have a problem with a lot of iron in the water. Water is easy to locate, we are told, and wells are not too deep. The area we are in is rural..
Before I go any farther into this project what should I be looking for? Any special pumps or filtering systems keeping in mind I’m hiring this out and am retired with a moderate fixed income. I’d like to do it right the first time rather than go back and “fix” something that is realatively new.
Any info would be appreciated.
Jim, the new old beach bum
