Through the Back Door! by Jim Kuebelbeck Testimonial - continued “The [drilling contractors] then went to the second location this other gentleman selected. This was at a slightly lower elevation and about 300 feet farther away from the house. My husband and I couldn’t bear to watch, so we stayed away while they were drilling. A couple of hours later, more bad news. Granite was again encountered. (So much for the scientific approach.) They were prepared to try a new location at random, in a different direction, and even further away, but my husband told them to stop, and that we needed to regroup. Needless to say, we were devastated. We were now the proud owners of three dry holes that cost a lot of money; money we had planned on using to build our dream home and feeding and clothing our three young children. My husband was then able to contact Jim again, and explained how desperate we were. Without water we would be the proud owners of a very expensive new home without a water supply. Jim agreed to come out the next Saturday to dowse the property, and he assured my husband that we would be living in our dream home “with a water supply!” Saturday morning arrived and Jim and Carol arrived at our seemingly cursed piece of property. They said they had never encountered a piece of property as large as ours where they were unable to locate a good water source. They spent well over an hour on the property and searched the whole area. The more time that passed, the more worried we became. On the entire property, Jim found only two promising sites. The two locations were actually very close to our house, and right next to our driveway! We would never in a million years have opted to drill on those sites on our own. Carol placed their name flags along what they said was an underground water flow, and marked the direction of the flow. The hard part for us was waiting until the following Monday for the well [drilling crew] to arrive. I was unable to be on-site when they started drilling, but my husband was there for the start of the drilling. After watching them set up, he couldn’t bear to watch the drilling, and left the site to do some carpentry work inside our new home. Later that morning, he got a text message from the [drilling contractors] saying, “Things are looking great! We’re only at 25 feet and getting over 30 gallons a minute, with no granite in sight!” Gary called me immediately and shared the good news. We both began to start breathing again. In the days that followed, we learned that we have the best well in the whole area. Gary called Jim and Carol that night to update them. They had already heard the good news from the well [drilling contractor], but Gary filled them in on all the details. We will invite Jim and Carol to our open house celebration when we get settled into our new home! Gary and I will forever be grateful for how they helped us with their water dowsing ability.
