Our entire property will be solar powered so the water system was designed around this. After 3 months of research and talking with anyone in the field that would take my call I went with a Grundfos 6 gallon per minute pump that will take solar or generator without missing a beat. It is rated for 850′ of head pressure so my 375′ is nothing for it.

By this stage of the game I had become good at finding the info I needed on the internet. Between YouTube videos and manufacturer websites, most of what you need is out there. Add some common sense and basic mechanical ability and you have a recipe for success.
Here we have everything wired, taped and secured on the pump.
We unrolled the 300′ roll of 1″ poly pipe, ran wire and safety rope from the pump and taped it every 10 feet.
Then I tied it off to our Ranger in case it started to get away from me and had Sadie slowly drive down the road as I hand fed it into the well.
Setting that by hand brought me right to my physical limits. My hands ached for weeks. I can see why pump guys use boom trucks.
