    I was wondering if someone might be able to offer advice on a question about my well. My well is about 80 deep. In the event of a prolonged power outage, is some kind of hand pump available to pump up water from this depth? Any advice would be appreciated.

    We tore down an old shed that was on our property to replace it and found this. There were 2 sheds, both had the pipe coming out of the ground. I assume this used to be a well since the tank says well x trol on it.The house is only a few years old, so I think these have been there for a long...

    Still searching for the right generator which lead me to this question: I have a well on my land, there's an 8 inch well casing going down I think about 150ft.
