Screen Size Does Matter

Size of screens and casing does matter in a Small Diameter well.  In physics and engineering, in particular fluid dynamics and hydrometry, the volumetric flow rate (also known as volume flow rate, rate of fluid flow or volume velocity) is the volume of fluid which passes per unit time; usually represented by the symbol Q (sometimes V̇). The trick with water wells is that the velocity (fluid flow rate) needs to be slow enough to pass water through the sand not water with sand.   Sand and silt migrate is to be avoided at all possible.  The first and most reliable step for this is to open up and use larger diameter screens and casing than others on the market, and pump at an appropriate rate outlined by your driller.
