Well, we dropped the 1 1/2 hp submersible pump to 3 feet from the bottom of the 58' drilled well and jury rigged the 220v power.
We chained a 2x4 to the well casing and mounted a shop made aluminum clamp to hold the 1 1/2" plastic pipe. Mounted a 1" ball valve to control the flow and for backpressure (thanks rusted nuts).
This is a temporary setup until we mount the pitless adapter so I connected a length of so cord to the pump with the connector kit and plugged into an existing 220v receptacle in the shop.
Ran the pump at 1/4 flow for ten minutes and was pumping brown water but no detectable sand. Upped the flow to 1/2 and ran for 20 minutes and water was still cloudy but better with very little drop in water level in the well.
Upped the flow to 3/4 and filled two 55 gallon barrels in about 4 minutes. The level in the well dropped about 2 feet and there was visible turbulence in the well while pumping
Hope she clears up a bit and hope you get a kick out of the hillbilly setup.
