Shallow Well Dig with Hand Auger
Why not put in your own well? You can use it for your garden, your washing and sanitary needs. Before using it for cooking or drinking, you should get it tested. This video, by tigercreekfarm, shows how to use a hand auger to drill the well. In this video he went down 14 feet. After drilling the well, he installed the casing pipe, sealed it and then ran his pump pipe which was connected to a hand pump, or could be hooked up to an electric pump.
The whole process didn’t take all that long. Why not add one to your retreat?
