Opened the well

Today we cracked open the well.

I was not expecting this:

Jan and lewie pulled that pipe up for about 5m and they didn't pull it out of the water.  WOW.   Serious cement work down there too.  Currently discussing options about how to pump the water  out, and see how fast it refills, and then figure out what we're going to do with it!.

That's one feature you really want to keep. Check the acidity/alkalinity(?) of the water because of the cement. Hopefully it's all good. This is brilliant. Keep this in good condition and covered so dead things don't fall into it.

Hiya,

 

The well is covered.  We need to borrow a fire pump to see how it goes after we empty it the first tme :).   Apparently it didn't hit water so we'll see what's what and then make plans.
