in this video we adapted and Simple Pump hand pump to a two foot diameter bored well using and adapter plate. Though many homes have been switched over to municipal water systems or drilled wells these old bored well are a wonderful backup source of water. With so much room and storage capacity many pumps can be added to them and then tied to the home as long as backflow prevention is applied.

  4. Just be aware of your state regulations regarding anything to do with water wells. Hefty fines can be imposed by your state DEP if you don't have a licensed driller or pump installer on site performing or supervising work being done.

  6. Wow….love your videos but $1,500 for the Simple Pump is a lot IMHO.

  7. How difficult is it to remove from the cap when you need to service your electrical pump or water line?

  8. Wondering why their well is bored? Not enough activity???

  9. Dude, you should have did a voice over for the entire video from inside the well.. sounds awesome.

  10. Cool, I opened our old one couple yrs ago. Took the pump out and rigged rope n pulley. All I use now for drinking. Use tap w/ chlorine filter for bath and am happy.
