Default How to make Horizontal loop holes

Went out the other day had a idea that could help out some of the people who have rock down 15 or so ft where they couldnt drill there own verticle holes. So . I dug 2 small holes about 4 or 5 ft away I hooked up my pipe that i drill wells with and went horizontal for the 5 ft . Pipe came out other end . I pulled it out . The other side had a pretty good hole. 1 1/4 made about a 3 1/2 inch hole. If someone didnt have a trac hoe and didnt mind doin the work to dig down as deep as they could then do it on a big scale and Only difference . They wouldnt use slinkies they would want to use verticle loop hole pipe.

You could use fresh water as long as the hole didnt take that long . Id recommend recirculating it that way you dont fill up the hole your standin in. When your done make sure have a barrel in the other hole to catch all the circulated mud . So you can use it to do another length . Or if your done just fill up the other hole with the water and pull your barrel out.
