          Herbet:–Picture in your mind a vertical pipe 20-25long with a 36 well point at the lower end. Now imagine that you have driven that pipe down into the ground so that only 1 is still visible above grade. Now screw on a check valve (keeps the water from running back down the well when you turn the pump off). Add an elbow and connect to your shallow well pump with PVC pipe. Prime your pump with water…turn the power on and watch the water come gushing out. If you are satisfied with the flow, connect your pump to a captive air storage tank and adjust the operating pressure of the pump to your needs. Sit back and enjoy your handiwork….Bud
