What is a Sand Point Well?

Sandpoint wells are a do-it-yourself well project.  A sandpoint is purchased and driven into the soil via a post pounder, sledge or jack hammer and the addition of 1-1/4 OR 2 INCHsteel pipe, typically in 5 ft sections until water is encountered. Additional depth is encouraged for positive free flowing water into the well.  Googling and YouTubing “sand point wells” is encouraged for more information.  The sandpoint has a hardened point and holes drilled in the body to allow water to enter.  An internal screen keeps grit out of the water supply.

A sandpoint well is often a suggested option for people who have a well that is not compatible with our current installation procedure.  Please be advised that sandpoint wells work in areas that have shallow water tables and do not have rocky soil.  Driving a second well can often be the solution for people seeking water security.
