It something goes t up, point the finger at the yokel eh?
Dunno, how bigs the pump, how bigs the well?
Might sound silly but a nearby farmer was telling me that Severn Trent have a borehole on his farm that’s about 4feet in diameter!!!!
I would guess you’ll be dealing with something much smaller, I can’t imagine the likes of Severn Trent needing the help of a local yokel, so probably just something capable of lifting, going to be a few times up and down for that depth.
Apparently they can be buggers to pull out, it’s a subject that’s been covered on here in the past.
It might be worth asking whoever you’re helping exactly what help they need.
Our 4" pump is just on 32mm blue pipe with a 25mm pipe taped along side used as a dip tube when initially setting it up. Ours is about 170ft deep. Has been taken out about 6 times so far .Surely nobody would pull a pump using just the plastic pipe. The pumps have eyes on top to attach a cable or poly rope; that's what you pull with.
