4 ways to dig wells in rural areas to find water sources

My grandfather used to specialize in drilling wells, drilling a well at least three to four thousand dollars, depending on the depth and diameter of the well, drilling a well of hundreds of meters, at least ten thousand yuan. The depth of the well should be based on the depth of the groundwater "water veins" and decide.

Drilling wells to find water

Our village has a hundred-year-old well, where the water is particularly sweet, and the water has never dried up, as if "inexhaustible, inexhaustible". In the old days when there was no running water, this well was the only source of water for the whole village, and there was a big water tank at the entrance of every house in the village, specially for storing water.

Water is a necessity for life, and in many rural areas today, tap water is installed. Tap water is convenient, but once the dry season, it is easy to stop the water, so it is especially important to have a well that never runs dry in rural areas.

In the rural areas to drill water wells, the old people often say to hit the "Yin River" water pumping is not finished, "Yin River" is the underground river, the underground river is an important part of the Earth's water cycle, we are drilling water wells, if you can open the underground river, then the well will naturally be a constant stream of water. If we can open up the underground river when we drill a well, the well will naturally flow with water. In modern society, the water table is getting lower and lower in many places. In the past, a well could be drilled for eight or nine meters to produce water, but now it may take hundreds of meters to produce water, so finding the right place to drill a well is especially important.

Groundwater Detector Recommended

.150m groundwater detector

.300m groundwater detector

.500m groundwater detector

How do I find a water vein for a rural well? Is there any good method?

1, two mountains sandwich a cave, the middle of the pumping can not dry (two mountain range sandwich a ditch, ditch side water flow)

As the saying goes, "water goes lower", the middle of the two mountains is often the place where groundwater must pass through, from this external drilling wells tend to be relatively shallow depth, the cost of drilling water wells is naturally the lowest.

Note: When drilling deep wells, if the water is still red after a very deep drilling, you can continue to play deeper. Of course, if in the mountainous areas, it is possible to hit the geological layer containing iron, if people drink, it is best to find the relevant parts of the laboratory, so that people drink up relatively safe.

2、Find the water veins by observing the plants on the ground

In the dry season if the grass grows relatively luxuriant in a certain place, generally speaking the water table in this place will be relatively shallow, the probability of drilling water wells from here will be relatively large.

In the process of planting crops we often see such a phenomenon: the same piece of land sown at the same time, often crops do not mature at the same time, a part of the crop will appear back to the phenomenon, and the height of the crop will be significantly higher than other places, where the probability of drilling water wells out of water is relatively high.

3, winter ground often foggy places, the water table is relatively shallow, more suitable for drilling water wells

The ground is often foggy in winter, often wetter, in this place to dig shallow wells can easily hit the water.

Here is a great trick to share: just dig a pit where you think there may be groundwater, insert a few chicken feathers in the pit, and then cover it with a container (bowl), open it overnight to see, the more water on the chicken feathers, the greater the possibility of underground water. According to this method can quickly deduce the location of the underground water veins.

4、Use PQWT groundwater detector

Groundwater detector

PQWT groundwater detector uses the earth's electromagnetic field as a working field source, based on the difference in resistivity of underground rocks and ores, and measures the change pattern of several (or dozens) of different frequency electric field components generated by the earth's electromagnetic field on the ground to study the electrical changes in the underground geoelectric section to solve geological problems. It is widely used to quickly find and evaluate different types of groundwater in urban, rural, mountainous and plain areas. Determine the well location, the amount of dissolved water in a single well, the number of layers of the aquifer and the depth of each layer.


Drilling wells to find water veins is a very complicated matter, plains, mountains, hills are not a concept, unless one can clearly understand the underground rock structure, geological and hydrological situation, even very experienced well drillers want to find quality groundwater only 70% success rate.
