You're not training those Mississippi water snakes to dig in my yard, are you???
Anything you come up with might be better than my post hole drill!

Water moccasins those things are so mean they would look at granite and it would move out of there way

Na i originally designed it for shallow water wells for handpumps. But got on here and seen a need to make a little beefier one that is cheap for anyone to use.

I was planning on geo thermal here until we decided to move. Our soil is sand sand and just enough silt in it that in the summer when it gets really hot and dry it gets as hard as concrete.

Here water wells are running around $25 a foot and you have to go down 200+ for good water. Have heard of allot in the 400'+ range these days as well. So with the price of well drilling geothermal is quite expensive. In fact I found a well drilling truck for sale a while back... Would be cheaper to buy the truck drill what you need. Kind of like gutters here, I can buy the machine for less than having it done.

But interested in what you have in mind.
