STATIC WATER LEVEL
The stable water level in your well when you are not pumping and haven’t been pumping recently. Measured from ground level down.
How far under the ground level the submersible is. Will be a larger number than the water level.
DEPTH OF WELL
Distance from ground level to the solid bottom of the well. Will be a larger number than the water level and submersible set.
How quickly the well fills back up after pumping. Will probably be on your well report.
CASING RISE ABOVE GROUND LEVEL
Distance from ground level to the rim of your casing. Usually between about 12 and 30 inches. Can be less or more than that. Some wells will be below ground level.
CONNECT TO HOME’S PLUMBING
In most wells, the Simple Pump can pump into your pressure tank, giving water all around your house. This is a huge convenience.
Most wells are roughly on the same level as where the water is going. Some homes might be uphill. If your home is uphill, we need to know the VERTICAL difference between the well and your home. Also, if the distance is a long way, the “across the ground” distance will be useful.
