Hey RN.

I have the pump set three feet from the bottom of the well. Well is 58 feet and static level is 18 feet.

I really haven't pumped the well very much. I have been busy planting some new trees and dealing with family issues. Don't want to let it run unless I can be right near in case it sucks 'er dry.

Thats way you test pumped it at 5gpm for 15min. then 15gpm for 15 min. then 20 gpm for 1/2 hr. or what ever it was, THAT was to show you how much you can pump from the well without pumping it dry. Once you know that then you plug the pump in and walk away for a day or two.

OK. Now it is beginning to sink into my noggin'. I am going to repeat that procedure and carefully note the water depth in the well.

Thats the nice thing about have a ball valve on the water line you can adj. it to where the water lever quits dropping, then time it to see how long it takes to fill up a five gal bucket, then you know how many gpm your well will make. some well will drop the water lever 5, 10 , 20 feet then stop dropping and hold that lever while they pump, what I alway did was start out slow so I wouldn't pick up a lot of crap and jam the pump, then open her up and pump full bore if the water droped to the bottom of the well I would start closeing the ball valve to where the water lever start to hold it's own then i would time it to see how long it took to fill a five gal bucket. good luck.
