Does anyone know of an easy way to estimate the depth of an existing well? I'm researching the feasibility of converting to a solar / wind system. The pump on my well (Gould J05) is a 1/2 HP, AC unit with an 11 amp plate rating. The system is installed above ground with a single tube so I'm guessing it's a shallow well setup. I'd hate to guess wrong. Short of the pump being power hungry and incompatible with a small, off grid system, what I know about wells couldn't fill the back of a match book cover even if there was an ad. There is nothing on my deed or site map as to well depth either. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks.
