Default well water

Can anybody tell me about how many gallons per minute you should be getting from a well. I am not up to date on how well systems work or how deep wells should be. Can anyone help me out with this.

I can't help you much. I just know that at my parents house in Montgomery County, the well was about 25 feet depth. It was an underground stream, so that amount of water just depended on the pump and motor.

I think this would vary a lot, even within the same area.

The depth of a well can vary a lot. I know of people here in Michigan who have had to go down hundreds of feet before hitting water. There is no one answer for the depth question.

As for the gallons a minute, I did a search on 'water well gallons per minute' and there looked like there were a lot of good hits there.

I wish I had well water now, although it can also vary in quality, the last time I had a house with a well, the water was wonderful!

And one word of caution. Be careful with a well anywhere near a landfill, industrial area, or gas station (current or past). It doesn't take much to affect ground water over a large area. I would get the water tested just to be safe.
