How to Drill Your Own Water Well

How to Drill Your Own Water Well
77 web pages and 49 videos entirely devoted to helping you drill your own well In these pages the "do it yourself water well drilling" technique is referred to as well drilling, but many call this technique "washing" or "jetting" a well. It is somewhat similar to the rotary bit method which most real water well drillers use for water bore drilling. The DIY technique involves water pumped down the center of a PVC schedule 40 pipe used as both a drill stem and a drill bit. At the bottom end of the PVC pipe a "drill bit" is fashioned by cutting teeth into the end of the PVC pipe. The pipe is rotated back and forth as the PVC pipe is slowly worked into the ground while the cuttings are brought to the surface by the upward flow of water in the annular space around the pipe.

How to Build Under-Cabinet Drawers & Increase Kitchen Storage - Step by Step You could build the drawers with nothing but hand tools and a circular saw, but a table saw and miter saw will give you faster, better results.
