I tried that.
The branch would do that for me. I wasn't gonna call in the well diggers so who knows whether it meant anything. Also, I was walking over an aquifer that was huge --- miles wide ... but, hundreds of feet below the surface.
That brings up an interesting question. Since I love the smell of cilantro, why doesn't the smell of stink bugs make me hungry?
Unless you want someone digging a high-capacity well right next to you (and drying up your well) it might be best not to advertise.I found 3 productive water wells using the branch method hundreds of miles apart. My third water well set at 29' produced 152 gals / min. in arid central Cal.. Wells just 1 1/2 miles were dug to over 350'.
