    We dont use many well points around here any more. Our local LA Hazard's/Irr supply had them. Last one I saw was well over 10 years ago. I guess they were phased out here because people were installing them in their cellars. We have a well driller here with a retail store. Your drillers may sell to you directly too.

      It's a shallow well for Irrigation only. No cross contamination , Not hooked to home water. Will have a concrete seal .ect.
      Will use My BORZIT, 4-6 inch PVC with stand pipe and foot valve.

        I have a local hard ware store i can buy most of that stuff,

        but I have bought a lot from a company in Denver, Submersible water pumps, Sump and Sewage Pumps, Windmills and Hand Pumps, Monitoring Supplies. they have treated me well, I have bought drop pipe, fiberglass sucker rods, cylinders, leathers, well seals, jet pumps, and some other, (there not nessarly the cheapest but they are a one stop shop),

        one can buy some on amazon,

        and usually if you know what your looking for one can do a google or bing search and find it,

          Tool, how deep do you think? What type of soil is it?

          My jetter with current pipe boring set can go 50'. 4"would be much simpler than 6".

          I can jet and then insert the pvc sleeve as we progress. Pump out the slurry too.

            That's a great Idea Rick. My pressure washer set up doesn't have Much poop,though. Shallow wells , won't pump over 27 FT' But Ill Probably go to 30ft. or so. Go to the BORZIT site and You'll see some Video of some well drilling.

              Tool, 30' in the right soil is pretty easy. Especially with hdpe that can take the blows of a sledge hammer.

              Start off with 10 or 20' section and jet from the inside and outside if needed.

              What's the soil condition?

              I do 4" from curb face under sidewalk in a matter of minutes.

                Tool, I believe that tractor supply sells all that stuff. A jetter wil work right up till you run into a big rock. We did a couple using the jetter but had to drill in about a dozen places before we managed to get past big rocks.
