A few years ago, I was getting these insane water bills. I mean HIGH! So I decided to dig some wells in my yard to have water for my landscape. I live alone, so I know it had to be from watering the grass.
So I hired a company to come out and dig these wells. The foreman and I walked all around my yard and as we were walking he was putting down flags. I asked what the flags were for. He said, “The flags represent good places to dig for water.”
I asked, “Why do you have so many flags?”
He said, “I’m not sure if any of these places will produce water.”
I said, “Hold up, you mean if you dig all these spots and don’t hit water I still have to pay you?”
He said, “Yes, that’s how it works.” I said, “Ok, fine.”
Needless to say, he dug three wells and never hit water. I said, “Just stop.”
I got a few more extreme water bills and called him back. He said, “Are you sure?” I said, “Yes, keep drilling until you hit water.”
The next well he dug he was down 500 feet and still didn’t hit any water. He asked if I wanted him to stop. I said, “Go deeper.”
He dug down another 200 feet and still nothing. I said, “Go deeper.” He drilled another 200 feet and he hit rock. I said, “Blast it, cut it, do whatever you have to do but keep digging.”
After fighting the rock and breaking his drill and getting a new one we got a little deeper. He said, “We are at 1,200 feet, why do you want me to keep going?”
I said, “Cause I’m tired of these water bills and I’m going to do something about it.”
He said, “But this is really deep.” I asked him if he had hit water yet. He said “no,” so I told him to go deeper.
“But you don’t understand,” he said. “We don’t usually drill this deep, this is going to be expensive.” I told him that, “Sometimes you have to go deeper to get what you are after, no matter what the cost.”
He started the machine and went down another four inches and hit a river of water. Just a few inches separated me from getting my breakthrough. That was five years ago and that well has never run dry.
