Hand dug well pump replacement

how to replace a submersible pump in a hand dug well


Our well pump started having problems this weekend.

It only wanted to stay on for a few minutes, which made me think it was over heating and nearing the end of its life.

The local hardware store had a more powerful FloTec pump priced at 109 dollars that seems to be doing a good job so far. Anna noticed a break in the power cord of the old pump during this operation. We'll fix the cord and keep the old pump as a back up.
