Answer:

If you have a regular deep well submersible pump, there is a piece called a pitless adapter, usually welded to the well casing, sometimes connected to the well casing by compression fittings. The pitless adapter, is what connects the two pipes. The main pipe to the pump has a fitting on it that just slides into the fitting on the horizontal pipe. This fitting is visible, by looking down the well casing. It should be about 18 to 24 down on the side where the horizontal pipe enters the well casing. The top of the pitless adapter has a 1 threaded hole in it. You can buy a tool or rent one, or you can make one by using a piece of 1 threaded pipe, a T adapter and two shorter 1 threaded pipes. You make your T pipe by using 1 piece of pipe about 30 long, the T adapter and 2 pieces of pipe about 12 long. The handle(the 12 pieces) has to be wide enough that it will not go down the well casing. You simply screw the long piece of pipe into the pitless adapter and pull up. Now you will have the weight of the pump, the vertical pipe and the pump wire, so if you don't think you are strong enough get help. The T handle you made will stop the pump from falling to the bottom of the well if you drop it. Below are two links. The first one is pictures of pitless adapters. The second explains there use a little bit.
Mostly working. I had a 7 hour shift today and didn't get home until 5. My parents had just gotten home with dinner, so we ate and watched TV and then I went on the computer for a little while. Then we went to get ice cream, and now I just finished studying for a quiz I have tomorrow. I still have some stuff to do get my school stuff ready for tomorrow, figure out what I'm going to wear, and straighten up my room a little. Hopefully I'll get the motivation to do that pretty soon. Then I'll probably just watch some TV and go on the computer for a little while longer before bed. BQ: My mom and one of my friends.
Sorry, too many items for me. I can only handle one thing at a time. I'll take the rubber ducky. You can have the other two. I always share.
