To find your static well water level,

Here is what you'll need. A large fishing bobber. They are normally red on bottom & white on top. (Wal Mart, fishing dept), you'll need a large washer, next get some twine/string, (not too thick) say 100 ft. Now you are going fishing...so to speak. :-)
 
Tie the washer to the end of the twine/string. Next tie the bobber about 6 inches to a foot above the weight. Now lower that down your well opening...the bobber will float when it hits water and go slack...you should feel it get lighter...(Make Sure It Is Hitting Water...bob it up and down rather quickly , you should hear a blooping sound as the fishing float hits the water) then pull it tight to take out the slack...mark it at top of well opening by pinching a piece of tape around the twine...pull the fishing bobber out...lay twine/string on the the ground and measure. That is your static water level.
