    Found this thought it was cool. Can be hooked up to a 350 foot well and will feed your pressure tank so you can have house water. Either hand or solar operated. Im getting a price, i will let you guys know if it's nuts or not.

    Had to draw water as a kid sometimes when power went out, then at Aunts house as older teen. No fun when it is cold out side.
    I think I'd rather have solar.

    Wow bit steep on price. And i was hoping it was mounted to your existing pipes but it needs to draw directly over the well.

    So my well is dug and this system is for drilled wells up to 350feet. Beyond that well... Thats a deep subject.

    Then you could very well have water at 350, this might work for you.

    It might. We have a well guy who goes fishing near our new place who is going to check the static depth for us come spring.
