Electric pump at about 220'. Been there for 10 years and nice to have

Hand pump

Hand Water Pumps - Baker Manufacturing Company

Had to dig in the archives to find this...I'm using the 12HD force pump which will put water into the second story of the house if needed. The cylinder head is a brass 2" which will pass by the pitless adapter of the electric pump on the way down. That is the biggest I could get down there inside a 6" well casing. This head produces .16 gallons of water per 7.5" stoke.
I installed this pump myself with a homemade steel pipe derrick assembled over the well head. The drop pipe is 1-1/4" galvanized steel. Pretty heavy once you get most of 200' screwed together and lowered into the well which requires a heavy duty hand pump head to suspend the whole deal.
