When It Comes To Screens - Size Does Matter!
When it comes to drilling and water wells. It does, it is very important.
When it comes to the size of your screen for your water well the screen plays a critical part in how good your well performs. So what exactly does that mean? Well, let’s first talk about diameter. Diameter is the distance across any given circle like that found in pipe and screens. The screens are the heart of a well. The photo below shows a 2 inch stainless steel screen, 4 inch stainless steel and a 6 inch stainless. Clearly the 6 inch diameter screen has the largest diameter and has the greatest surface area available allowing for the greatest capacity to allow water movement to the well. The screens are really the heart of a well. We recommend always going with the largest diameter available.
