I say the well casing is a bad idea as many wells have submersible pumps
which are easily damaged by lightning strikes the local electricians
tell me and it does sound plausible.
I agree. I had a well very close to the tower at one location. Two
strikes down the well fried two submersible pumps.
My last location had the well about 150 feet from the tower and was not
attached in any way and I never had a probelm.
At the station I am currently putting up the well is about 200 feet from
the closest tower and will NOT be attached. Those submersible pumps are
expensive to replace and a 165 foot 4 inch casing makes a great path for
