Find the water and build a well

Hi all,
I am wondering if someone builds a well himself. I would like to know what is the process to know where the water is underground (there is some device?) and if a well could be build with some samples tools. Could you come with more details about this process? The company to build a well in my area is very expensive and the water depth is around 2 meters.
Thank you, Cristian

If the water is found in sand, consider a "well point". There are "driven" points which are hammered in http://weather.nmsu.edu/hydrology/wellpoint2.htm , and PVC points which can be installed using water pressure. Call Brady http://www.bradyproducts.com/products.htm#pvc and ask them for installation instructions + see http://www.bradyproducts.com/faq.htm .
