The well renovation was completed on Friday afternoon with the installation of the refurbished pump assembly and motor. The visible portion looks new, however it is the old motor with a fresh coat of paint and complete rebuild. Figuring the well was installed in 1989 and lasted through 2011, hopefully we can get at least another 20+ years out of it. Reviewing video footage of the before and after is pretty convincing that the blasting and jetting process works as advertised. The 40' of stainless steel screen at the bottom of the well looks brand new and there are visible cavities behind the slots. Now we just have to put a fresh coat of paint on the rest of the assembly and make it a bit more presentable. If I can get the video footage I'll try and share some of the before and after stills from it.
