greenhouse and a well

jm1234May 16, 2013

latter this fall I would like to put up another 24x96 foot greenhouse. but I would like to put this over my well (in the corner) so I can have water available.

are there any dangers in this we farm organic. so there are no chemicals to leach down.

what are your thoughts?

not sure what kind of well you have but mine needs repairs to the pump (twice in 20+ years) sometimes and i think a greenhouse over it would be in the way.

Randy is right with the need for repairs. They have to pull the pump or points on a shallow well they need complete 360 degree availability. In a greenhouse the whole frame would to be moved about ten feet around the well. I would believe the easiest was to go would be to simply dig down to outlet of well and connect a new line to the greenhouse and possibly to each greenhouse at that time
