well pump installation

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I have had a well drilled and need to install the pump. I know I can do this, somehow, without contractors help (and expense). Has anybody been through this process?

Is this a deep well or shallow well pump?

Hand pump? Deep well submersible, shallow jet, etc?? How is the well casing finished off at the top?

Try this site. http://www.pumpsonline.com/ You need to know if you are going to use a submersible pump or a jet pump. There are some sites on-line that have instructions for installing pumps. Do not put the sub. pump or jet/foot valve of the jet pump on the bottom of the well. Make sure you use a well cover to keep critters out of the well. You can purchase all of the equipment you need at a hardware store. If you can fit pvc pipe, you can do the installation.
