We live in East Texas and have a deep drilled well. I would like to put in a watering system for my plants, but my husband says out well won't handle it. He says its a "slow well" (not sure what that is!!) and watering the plants would burn up the pump because it would use too much water and the well would go dry before it had time to fill back up. Can we do something to turn our well into a "fast well" (if this exists)? Or what are our alternatives???
Any help would be appreciated.
Although this may sound dated, and it is, old technology still has it's merits. Try rain barrels. I can't water my entire garden with what I get from them, but they certainly help take a load off other sources.
