This is how to develop a well. Note the clear cup in the man's hand?? He will not move the rig off the hole until the water is clean.
This is an existing older well, not a new one and... the question was about a pressure tank.

We originally had dug wells almost across the street from each other and were both close to running out on dry summers. Still have not regretted putting in the deep well even though I might have waited had I known he was going to stop using his dug well.
I am glad it is not 2". We can not drill 2" in Michigan. They just do not like them at the DEQ. Mostly because once they are hooked up, to re-chlorinate them, the drop pipe has to come out.
