well question- gpm problem, answers needed asap
I am cross posting this to the building forum and kitchen forum because we need an answer for our builder tomorrow morning so the well people can either leave or not.
We have dug down to 525 ft. and we are still only at 4 gallons per minute. Our builder is suggesting we stop. Everyone else that I have talked to says 4 GPM is not sufficient.
Anyone on here have a well that has such a low GPM or anyone have any info on why that will or will NOT be OK. We've already doubled our well allowance and our builder has no indication of if we will find more if we go further or how much further we would need to go. Our house is on top of a mountain.
If it makes any difference to anyone's answers, we have a 75 gallon hot water heater and a 50 gallon hot water heater, but we also have a big tub and multiple shower heads.
Thanks for the help again!
