I would like to try aand drill a sand point well. Has anyone done this that can offer me some help/advice. My neighbor had a sand point well drilled for $400, they only needed to go down 25' for good water. We live on a riverbank. The soil is sand/silt with almost no rocks at all. I dug down 9 feet with an excavater for an outhouse and I didn't find even a tiny pebble. Can someone give me some advice or tips and maybe even a cost estimate. Unfortunately my neighbor is of very little help on how his was done.
