This splendid little tome - the latest in Susan's Dowsing That Works" series, is a special favourite of mine, now that I have joined the CSD "professional dowsers" roster! We dowsers - all of us - know about and understand dowsing for water flows, don't we? It's the first thing we were introduced to for pity sakes, wasn't it?
Well, yes, of course it was. But when we dowse a well for a paying customer we aren't working in a vacuum any more. Unless we are then going to
drill the well ourselves - and who amongst us is prepared to do that - we are going to have to work with a professional driller, quite possibly one
with a good deal more experience drilling than we have dowsing! So not only had we better have a pretty good handle on things like the options
facing a driller when he comes on site, but also the local regulations within which he must operate.
We ought to be able to discuss these factors with the client for whom we are siting the well, as well as important considerations such as environmental issues related to locating the well, (relation to septic systems, plumbing and maintenance accessibility, recommendations regarding water testing and treatment, the ins and outs of disinfecting the well, if necessary, and so forth). We should be able to tell them what rate of flow will be needed to meet the family's requirements as well as the rate the well is expected to yield, and we should know enough about the water cycle and the nature of underground water to deal with unexpected wrinkles that might come up - the driller drills off the marků and so forth.
Where to go to uncover all this information? Well now we have the perfect resource, in this splendid little book! Believe me, I won't be venturing forth on a job without reviewing it extensively, and it'll be in my back pocket anyway!
