I used to help him out to earn extra money. I helped him with drilling at least 30 wells in Florida. I never saw those results that were depicted in the video. BTW, you ususlly hit water in Florida at around ten feet in depth. I also stood by as Mr. Evans drilled our well here in NC. We hit water at 18 feet and drilled our well down to 446 feet. I didn' t see those results when our well was drilled either. I feel sorry for the Homeowner.
    I've never seen an artesian well with that much volume. Was there a pump involved that I didn't notice?

    I was logging one this fall and the driller forgot to write artesian in his log.... 400 gal / min... lol. Anyways, I took the pressure off the packer ( bladder ) turned my back for a second and the thing launched out of the casing like a bottle rocket. That was not so funny.
