    I think with solar, you also have to watch out for people trying to get a fast-fingers discount on solar equipment. Rooftop panels for household use are harder to get to.

    I am amazed that the ones on street signs and such don't disappear regularly

    They have deep well hand pumps, but they are pricey. Trash pumps or anything based on suction are a no go after about 25 feet. You can lower a suction pump closer to the water and they will lift higher than they can suction, but it is not ideal.

    Consider a generator and run the well once every two or thee days. Don't forget things like ibc totes at the gutter downspouts.

    A conversion on most generators to propane is a pretty easy thing to do, but you do lose some output. But you gain a lot in long term fuel storage

    It is a deeeep well. Thatís one reason I mentioned the Amish friend who has a two-cycle motor for his pump. Iím leaning toward something like that.
