Getting water from remote well

Postby Russell F » Fri Nov 17, 2006 9:54 pm

Anyone have any ideas on pumping from a remote well?

I have a remote well i would like to use for occasional irrigation or stock watering on some acreage down the road. No electricity, i thought about building a jet pump for the cub or big tractor but thought i'd ask yall before i did anything. Well is 50' with water at 25-30'. I was a good well till it was abandoned 10 years ago.

Any ideas?? With the water that deep it would have to be a jet pump, or submersable of some sort.

I would also like whatever i used to be semi-portable so i could store it when no longer needed or freezing weather, if it is tractor powered i would like it to be detachable so i could leave it there primed and take the tractor to the shed...

Thanks for any ideas...

Many of the old jet pumps used to come with a pulley so they could be belt driven in case of power or motor failure. You mihgt check wiht osme of the local salvage/junk shops.

My thought too. Simplest installation and least troublesome. Put a pin hole above the pump so it will drain and you can just leave it... it won't freeze. Don't leave the gen set. 8)

I have a set up on a dolly. A inverter, a couple of marine 12 volt batteries. and a cheap charger. If you only need power for an hour or so, this set up might work. I tote this dolly around the property with electric chain saw, power tools, etc. etc. and use it to jump start the tractors as well.

Use to have a really nice electric start generator set, until it got stolen. 120/240 volt 42 amps AC, 12 volt DC. Put it on a trailer and haul it to a work cite. 42 amps was enough to run a stick welder set on 150 amps.

You could also put in one of the older styly pump-jack heads and cylinder only instead of eletric motor,--pull it with tractor or small gas motor! thanks;sonny
