Well, well, well


Monday the well drilling rig arrived, although it was too wet to get started.  On Tuesday, they got started and got one well drilled.  Yesterday they got another drilled and today, well number three was drilled.  Three down and Four to go.


The guys ran into a spot of trouble with the grout.  You see, for the geothermal wells, they now have to fill the wells up with grout after they put the tubes in.  This machine mixes the grout and forces it through a tube to the bottom of the well until the well is filled.P1120932

The sand that had been delivered to them had rocks in it and the rocks were clogging the machine.  But they took it apart, removed the rocks and soon had the well filled up:


Doesn’t look like much does it?  Hard to believe that a messy patch of goo and a loop of tube will replace a furnace and a condenser unit.
