new well questions

We need a new well to replace our old hand drilled 1 1/4" well which is located in our dirt floor basement.The new well to be drilled will be 60ft/4" submersable pump outside well.Estimates vary depending on steel pipe or PVC,which one is best? What HP of pump should we use keeping in mind that we will want to irrigate some garden plots on our 15 acre farm in W.Michigan? How many GPM'S should we shoot for? Thank you in advance for your insight!!!

Re: new well questions

first thing first the casing is personal prefrence as to material used. I prefer pvc because you never have to paint it. the pump will probally be 1/2 hp for a 60 foot well. make sure you specify that you want a three wire pump because it is a better system. as far as gpm that is dependant on your specific well, my well produces approx 20 gpm while may parents live 3 doors down and only produce 15 gpm
