    Well drillers/pump experts

    Any one got experience with the old 3 inch wells that the air goes down?
    Ours has collapsed 229 feet down after options on not spending 20k i don't have.
    Long shot but thought the wise heads of the forum might help.
    Cheers.

    Jeese @BRADS with all the lead now buried at your place you might have to 'outsource water'......

    Jeez, we are still sorting out issues with water at 0 feet.
    Told the digger driver to dig a bloody big hole to catch all the water from the 3 springs causing the problem.
    We can ship the water down of you want.

    Well Brads, you could try sending the bill to the owner who may or may not of had something to do with the collapsed at 229 feet:0
    They should be able to pump it clear again. if not just put a target down there for next year, to help the other owner of the barn door target ! a 3" firing zone down should help Rushy

    Likewise, we have water constantly flowing from up the back and has just started slowing to a dribble from the last rain. Wife said this morning there was hail and now rain so flow will be back up again.

    $20k for water!!!!!
    Last year we spent $30k so we could flush the dunny

    Ahhh the memories. I never did take a shot at that barn door. We could all just go back and dig the bugger up for Brads.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    How can we trust you? Just because there are no visible hits doesn't mean you didn't struggle away flinging lead at it

    You should never doubt the word of a Rushy. I do have to say that I thought about throwing stones at it but out of respect for Brads lack of time to do a paint job I never tried.
