How to break a well for water with your own hands

All the above-described technologies for self-drilling of water wells have common features. After the well has reached the aquifer (water appears in large quantities in the rock), they continue to drill for some time, going deeper into the aquifer by 1-2 meters. Then the entire drill string is disassembled, and the casing is installed inside the well.

It is necessary to understand the casing. Choose a diameter depending on the size of the hole you have drilled and the type of pump you plan to use. We must carefully consider the choice of material. For some time asbestos pipes were used for the casing. But they are very harmful – the strongest carcinogen. Do not use galvanized pipes – zinc is not excreted from the body, it accumulates. And poisoning them has very bad consequences.

There is not so much choice – pipes from steel and stainless steel, as well as plastic – HDPE and PVC. (more…)

Rough floor in the house

  • Laying on the shoulders beams. In this embodiment, the beam is similar to the letter “T”
  • Laying on the cranial bars. The most common method, because the easiest. Bars nailed to the edges of the beams, and lay the boards on them.

Instead of boards, you can also use slab. He is able to withstand the load from the insulation.

On top of the boards mounted waterproofing, insulation, and in the end – vapor barrier. Rough floor ready. (more…)

Pumping equipment must pass freely into the pipe. Therefore, between the diameter of the pumping equipment and the inner diameter of the pipe the difference should be at least 5 mm.

Drilling principle

  How to make a well on the site

The descent and the subsequent lifting of the equipment – this is the process of drilling a well. The bar turns and simultaneously with it hit on top. Working together, it is much easier to do this work. One person turns the gas wrench, the second strikes the bar from above, punching the rock.
