We have 1 gallon per minute.... but the water level is around 12 feet. so there is 750 gallons of water column there... so i guess its enough

Is there talk of extra storage? I guess we can always add that later. I can fore-see issues on a hot July show with bathrooms with showers in full use!

The only extra storage would be in the expansion tank and the hot water heater. I hope the gallons per minute increase a bit. but still at something like 900 gallons storage thats alot of showers. Plus add the 1 gallon per minute rate. Guess we have to see how things go. worse case they have to come back and drill deeper or frack it. or worse yet drill another well@!
