We need help locating water for a new project in Kaplica, is there anyone who offers this service in this area? Also permission to dig a well, where do you get this from and how much does it cost?

In Esentepe the local expert is called "Boss Water", he sits outside / can be found at the first little supermarket up the hill. Cost is 100tl, and if you dig within 3 months and no water he will give you your money back. They say he has been responsible for 75% of all the wells in the area. Uses copper rods. I had him go over my place, suggested two places to dig... You take him to the location you want divined and return him afterwards.

I tried his rods, marched round and round nothing happening until he leaned over my shoulder and put his hands over mine, and without touching my hands away the rods went.....spooked me somewhat.,...never been the same since lol!

before you spend anymoney ask for the permission to dig a well - you will have most probably to wait quiet a long time before you get it - talk to the people around your place as well because if you have a neighbour who has already a well and the distgance is less than about 30 meters you will noty be allow to dig even if there is water - where about are you situated if you can say ?

When an old man from Lefkosa was divining in Karsiyaka, I went over and asked him if I could have a go, he told me no way could I do it, but anyway let me try - he was amazed when the copper rods went berserk in exactly the same place as when he had done it.



He asked me what my blood group was and I told him B+ he said that I was the same as him and that was why I could do it.



I did not tell him that my grandad had me doing this with willow/hazel twigs when I was a little girl.



Did not want to ruin his illusions.



I would still want to call in the 'professionals' if I wanted to dig a well, and I think that 1k is an outrageous fee and you would be foolish to pay anything like this amount of money.



Good luck with it!

You don't need anybody's help to find it.



Get a metal coat hanger and walk across where you think there may be water and if you hold the coat hanger horizontally from each end with each hand, the hook vibrates as you walk across the water stream under ground. This is an old Mongolian trick passed down with the generations. Although that was not their best invention, the best invention was invading Greek Cypriot lands.



Otherwise look at the water wells in the area on a map and it will give you a good idea where there may be water.

That has made us smile so much, we have already had great fun with metal bits etc tramping through grass and the rods are going crazy, probably like us but with 16 donums to scan we have to be sure. Nobody else lives anywhere near so no wells at all. Sorry Geoff but 1,000 is out of question, does anyone have contact no for Bob Vardy? Thank you all for your help, sure we will find water somewhere so we can start our new project for the dogs.

As mentioned do it with two wire coat hangers.



Straighten them out and then bend each one to give you a right angle with the short side at about 6 inches.



Hold a short side in each hand and the long sides pointing forward. Hold them with the hangers pointing towards the ground at about 30 degress and a couple of inches above the ground



It worked for me in successfully traced a water pipe that was nearly 2 metres below the ground.
