Your well depth is the distance from ground level to the solid rock at the very bottom of your well shaft.
To determine your static water level yourself, you'll need
- A small fishing weight
- 200 feet, or more, of a lightweight fishing line or kite string.
If you previously measured the static water level, you can use the same line. Just remove the bobber from the line.
How to Measure
- Lower until you feel slack.
- Mark the line at the top edge of the casing.
- Pull out and measure. This is your well depth - the distance to the bottom of the well shaft.
