A well-driller with an accurate douser would have a competitive advantage, I would think. Charge more for less work.

If I were an enterprising dowser (douser?), I'd make a deal like this: "I'll find you water under 100 feet (or whatever depth), or you don't have to pay me, and I'll pay for the drilling after that depth."

I bet a dowser who made that deal could charge good money for his services.

I'm sure they could. I've never had an issue with them. :-)

Man, you really don't have a clue.


Sit on your horse on top of a ridge, look out across the country and tell me there is no God.

Well, how about if they just said, "I'll find you water under x feet, or you don't have to pay me"?

James, here's the bottom line. You either believe it is possible or not. I don't know how, or if it would work in AK with permafrost or frozen Mastodon carcasses getting in the way. Have a nice evening:-)

90+% of well drillers I'm aware of do recommend having your well witched, most even recommend a specific person to do so.
