When my wife and I bought our home the previous owner had installed a 60 ft. deep 4 inch cased well on the property, with the intention of running a sprinkler system. The sprinkler system was never finished, as I have to mow the lawn too frequently anyway (
).... Our town recently installed a new water system and the bill is now sky-high and dry summer is about to hit, so we bought a jet pump and I installed it in the well to use for watering the garden and animals. We soon discovered that the water is ice cold!!!! No so bad for cooling off on a hot day, but what about watering the garden? I have not taken a temp of the water but it is much colder than that from city water. Will watering with the well water shock my garden plants' roots? I normally water at night since the daytime temps here are nearing the upper 90's, would watering at night help?
