In this video, Brooke and I drive a well at our remote off grid camp in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with the help of our good friend Scott. Its amazing to be able to get drinking water right out of the ground, on your own property.
Living off grid is a simple and quiet way to live but it does require a few systems to be in place in order to feel comfortable and have your needs met. An outhouse is top priority, and I would say a well comes in a close second. Having a way to get water for showers, the garden, your pets and of course to drink.....thats an amazing and wonderful thing.
I hope you enjoy seeing to process of digging a pilot hole, driving the well pipe, putting on the pump, and ultimately pumping your own water out of the ground. Enjoy!

We just did a sand point well at our cabin. It was an all day project using a fence post driver! We just got our water test back yesterday and it's 100% safe potable water! Total game changer for us!

@jrosborn77, I hit the water at 8 feet, and drilled 18 feet down. Now I can pump 20 Gl of water from the ground. After that I need to wait around 1 hour to pump out another 20 Gl. Do you have continuously water? I am worrying in the Summer time that I would not have ehough water for my garden. What do you think? Thanks.

@matt Harvey Spot on! we bought a new one online 4 years ago and installed it.In my state they insist on a plumbers lic. for too many things so we got it from Amazon.Well, the tank will not store any more than a gallon at a time.We disconnected it and we did gain about 5 PSI.we need to drop the well another 100 feet since I believe we are in year 7 of the drought up in Mass.We now have to "load shed" the water.How lucky you are to be up in the UPI! Dropping the well is not an easy task because those plastic clips they put to stop slippage have gotten stuck and we are afraid to lose the well head that was replaced about 7 years ago.When we get adequate rainfall, Life is a lot better but with a garden & all we can only do a rain dance.2 days ago we got our first significant rain in years.Since the snowpack has been very minimal this impacts your well too.I remember regular rainfall was common in these parts.Many people re experiencing drought in the U.S. or their fields are under water as if we don't have enough to worry about.Enjoy the UPI this Summmer & Fall.Very useful video.

That was really amazing. We have become so out of touch with our heritage and old ways that it's great to see people getting back to basics and showing us that we don't need to be so reliant on industry to enjoy life. Well done, thanks for sharing.

Love your channel brother, I have watched all your stuff! Having successfully completed this task myself in Manitowish Waters, WI I will share some of my lessons learned. 1.) I had water at 5 feet but I still used 4x 5' sections plus the point. The water flows great and is very clean. 2.) We rented an electric jackhammer with a 3" cup attachment. It was only $80 for the day and made this job so easy. 3.) Used 18" cheater bars on the 18" pipe wrenches to get the couplers extremely tight. 4.) stay away from the last thread on the pipe with the dope otherwise you will taste it I'm told. Also, clean out the inside of the point and pipes with dish soap before you drive them. I used a 1.25" pipe brush on a section of 1" pvc pipe as my scrubber. 5.) I used 12" section of pipe to drive on; it had a nice mushroom top by the time we were done. I had a drive cap on it at first but that quickly broke the threads on my 12" section. I didn't have enough couplers to sacrifice one. 6.) We cut a hole in the cabin floor and ran the pipe right down below the utility room. It will be boxed out in the crawl space and heated to prevent freezing.

That brings back memories from when I was a kid. In the 70s I think every well in the neighborhood was put in that way. I got to participate in several and there was always one of the senior residents bringing over the tools and giving the planning advice. Always a good idea to have a water test done just to make sure you didn't hit a pocket of something not so good for you. Nice video and thanks for sharing the experience.

Just started watching your channel. I'm so jealous of your soil, lots of rocks and clay here in my part of Upstate NY. Wells were always "drilled" with a truck mounted pounder, now today rotary drills are the norm. I actually worked as a mechanic many years ago on drilling and mining equipment, rock drills and the diesel compressors that run them. In places where there is shale underground, it was not uncommon for the drill steel to catch the grain of shale sheets, cause the drill steel to bend in the hole, and break. Cut off with a torch and abandon. If it was a blast face you might get the steel back out for scrap. I have a few stories of drilled blast holes did enter an aquifer underground, and the blasts did pop a few nearby wells, true story! You and your wife work so well together!

When I was growing up in the late 50's early 60's, until we moved when I was six or so, we had a very similar hand pump next to our kitchen sink. It was our only source of water on the property. Outhouse of course, and bathing was done with water heated on the stove and poured into a galvanized tub. If you are in the right geography, a sandpoint is a great way to get a constant water supply, however keep it away from outhouses and sewer leach lines for safety. We always used a step ladder and sledge hammer to drive the pipe. I like the driver that your friend Scott had made. A very purpose built tool and worked well. Never dug a hole ahead of time to start a sandpoint though I understand why you needed to. You both have fun up there, its looking very good... Joe

We lived in the highland and the old way was digging a well the diameter is 1 meter. Our well was 25 meters deep. It gave me nightmare just look down into it, so deep. But the water was so fresh and cold. My father made a metal screen with an opening big enough for the bucket, that helped preventing us from fall into it. During the dry season we have to wind the 4 gallon bucket to retrieve the water and it was hard work. It took two persons to do it because we were young and because the long distance from the bottom. It took an hour to get a 55 gallon drum to be filled. And after 10 buckets it felt like eternity and you are out of breath half way. Few years later my friend and his brother digging their own well and i had a chance to go down to the bottom. It was about 12 meters and they had a long way to reach water. It was a very scary feeling when you down there by yourself, the earth smell, the darkness, the cold black earth wrapping your whole being.

I noticed the pipe was moving a lot when you first started driving it and you had to keep it level. To avoid this take 2 2x4x8ft cut in half making a x screw together drill 1 1/2 pilot hole in center of x then center over hole and anchor with 2ft peices of Reed bar or rod at the ends. Once pipe is started level drive to desired depth then slide x over last pipe attach pump and done deal. Great video tkx

I just put in a well here in SC 4 months ago by myself. I wish I had a big driver like yours. I used a fence driver and it took 25 licks per inch for most of the depth. It took several days. I went down 20ft plus the point.The result was worth it. I just got the test report back and it is very good pure water. Thanks for the video.

Actually there's another way to do it if you have access to a barrel of water and a small pump using PVC as a casing I have done Wells down in Florida like that screen point and with trees around you are definitely use a pulley system to drop that hammer. Using a casing system gives you more water for your well also on you can always put an electric pump on it afterwards by using solar or whatever but great job guys great job as always

@Jay saw someone else mention if the top can freeze overnight and crack the pump which does make sense so most people remove the pump over winter. If you need to use in the winter you screw pump on prime and pump needed water and take pump off letting water fall down the pipe again to where it won't freeze.

@Jay A lot of insulation around the pipe and make sure to pump it regularly, the water in the ground for you is about 45 to 50 degrees (depending on how far up north in the north east you are) so as long as it's well insulated and cycled with new warmish water it shouldn't freeze.

I just love your videos. I am going to install a pitcher pump next week for another pastor. We just put our well in at the new homestead a couple weeks ago. We got 50 gallons a minuet at 270 feet down. The static water is at 180. It will have a small 1/2 HP pump because we are off grid and our solar system is only 5000 watts. Our homeplace has 5 springs and gravity feed but we are being sent out as missionaries to a poor and repressed area. The Lord has opened the door to the indigenous people of The Klamath Tribe. We are very excited about the move and the ministry. I looked for pitcher pumps and you popped up. Love your content and easygoing teaching style. May the Lord Bless your well in Jesus name!

that's exactly how I imagine a job like this to be.... I'd be incredibly lucky to get this on the first try and not hit rock or roots. This is the kind of job that looks easy and is easy in theory, but the Earth and the available water-table have countless variables that could make sinking a well impossible or cause significant setbacks .

When my dad drilled, he made a homemade jig that's plum and it would guide pipes plum into the ground while he pounds on them. If I remember correctly he drove a few pipes in until he stopped using the jig. However, when we moved to the mountains, he had to hire a professional driller because of depth, rocks and such. I was ten when all this happened, feels like yesterday. Good times.
