Not yet available in all villages and towns there is a water supply and country and garden plots, it is often not at all — water should be taken from the wells. As a rule, mine waters, and not always they are close to home. What if the well to build on the property? However, to dig the mine — a very laborious process, you will have to shovel a lot of earth. More affordable tubewell. Will there be enough water in it? The production rate of a well is usually small depends on the size of its cross section. Therefore, the tubular source, if it is correctly constructed and properly maintained, will provide the needs of the infield is not worse than mine and not give him durability. Besides, he does not pass the surface contamination and thus the most safe in hygienic respect.
Getting to the construction of the well, it is necessary to collect more complete information on the nature of rocks to the aquifer. This should take into account that solid stone layers and boulder-pebble deposits to go with a homemade tool it is difficult. If an aquifer is composed of unconsolidated granular rocks (sand, mixture of sand with pebbles), it is easiest to make so-called Abyssinian driven wells.
Very useful information about it contained in ancient literature.
In Russia, the sources of this type was tested in 1869 in a few places near Tsarskoye Selo. Despite the contents in the surface layers of limestone, managed to get fresh and cold water. In 10 minutes the well was driven to a depth of about 3 m and half an hour later the pump is screwed onto the pipe end, gave quite pure water — the one bucket per minute.
