Our water comes from a 60' deep artesian well on our property. I know how a artesian well works, but I also know that when the power goes out, there isn't enough natural pressure to fill the water lines in our house. What are my options for retrieving water from the well in the event power is out for a significant period of time? I've never cracked open the well pump before to see if the pipe can be retrofitted for a hand pump if it were to be needed. Is a hand pump even feasible on this kind of well?

Galvanized well bucket? not galvanized inside too huh? Don't think zinc lining is good to drink out of, seems I read some time back of health issues associated with that.
