    To save your back, you could use a tall step ladder with a pulley attached to the upper part, run your pump's safety rope through it and proceed to slowly and carefully lower the pump to it's resting point. Great videos you have.

    Just a suggestion... while it appears your pipe wrench trick to hold the pump when pulling it seems to work, my wife and I discovered our own trick that has allowed her to hold the pump by herself when I need to take a break from struggling with the weight. We've used it multiple times over the decades and it works great. Our well is not as deep as your... (only 480ft) but its still a lot of work. FYI: the last time we did it two year ago I was 70 and she was 69 (just the two of us) Barring a mechanical failure we're hoping the pump will outlive us and we've pulled outlast pump. Whew! NET: Use the rope tied to the pump motor to our advantage. When I start pulling it up, as the tubing and rope play out my wife grabs the free of the rope rope and heads towards the closest tree and proceeds to wrap the trunk two to three times around the trunk depending on the size of the tree. (A tree as small as 8" to10" in diameter works great with just two wraps). Anyway... as I'm pulling everything up she is easily able to pull on the rope and take up the slack. When I need a break I yell out to let her know then I slowly release my grip while she simply lets the weight of the pump assembly pull back on the rope and it tightens around the trunk. The weight of the pump assembly and subsequent friction of the rope against the tree trunk allows her to hold the entire weight with one hand and she does it all while sitting in a camping chair. FYI: For any folks reading this who have never pulled a well pump... the fun part is when you first start pulling it up and you think to yourself "Hmmm this isn't so bad"... then it instantly becomes becomes crazy heavy and threatens to pull your arms out of their sockets! FACT: When you first start pulling it up the pump and hose and pump are in still submerged in the water and are somewhat buoyant. However, after a couple more pulls the pump finally breaks the surface of the well water and you are instantly holding the weight of the pump, the weight of all that copper wire, the weight of all that poly tubing... AND... AND... the weight of hundreds of feet of water still trapped on the tubing which can weigh hundreds of pounds. As I've grown older over the years our last pump pulling adventure was "almost" more than I could handle as I could only pull in small increments but... my wife using a nearby tree was still able to easily hold it while I rested. We've had a great time working as a team together and find it bittersweet that age is catching up to us. We wish we could continue having fun together for another 50 years... but sadly that's not how life works. [sigh]..

    When installing your wires to the pull string it helps to stagger the wires so you don't have the wires all bunched up creating a thicker diameter in one spot. Did a bunch of this cable pulling in my working years.

    Marty, using string to pull wire through PVC conduit that has elbow joints is a no-no, as the string can cut into the inside of the joints. You should use the string to pull a flat piece of pulling tape back through your conduit and then pull the wire with the flat pulling tape to avoid damaging your conduit joints and elbows.

    Hi Martin and family... As a water well contractor I sorta cringed a little on your installation, but there again, you guys across the pond do things a little differently... I stopped using LDPE pipe around 30 years ago and have used HDPE and compression fittings since then... Another tip is to tape your cable and rope to the riser pipe at least every 8ft... I use a rubber car mat on the top of the casing to stop the pipe or cable getting hurt... (That is if I am not using a wheel)... Roll it into a tube and place into the top of the casing then fold the top back... You can then brake the pipes against the matt on the way down (and up) to give yourself a rest... Well done though - nice installation all round...

    I know by the time you see this it'll be too late but just remember you now have the potential to increase the draw i.e. more water removed per minute from the well so just make sure that you cant over run the wells capacity to keep up (seen it many times when people put a larger pump in later when I did this as a job in the 80's). So basically how much water is in the casing at rest (static head) And I recall your well is much deeper than the level of your pump meaning if that WERE to happen you could lower the pump ..... Anyways good call to go 220 given your power options! I suspect you will be fine so long as you aren't running the hydrant for long periods of time which bypasses your pressure tanks ability to limit pump run time!

    Finally caught up with your progress. Wow quite the accomplishments. Pulling that pump that you put in during the dead of winter in order to cut your amps cool! Impressive plan. Really enjoyed your ghost pulling the wire string as well as thinking ahead for have the pre-pull string in place for possible control monitors in the future.
    Something to think about for the future. Only nice-to-have and maybe more hassle to create then worth the results. Of course with my oil background I think more industrial, but when I go off-grid I will have various sensors to help me determine my future. One would be to monitor my water pressure. From my background things tend to give us warnings before they fail completely. I would tie a pressure sensor near the house.
    I did not want to bore with details, but a 4-20ma/1-5vdc "Water Air Compressor Pressure Transmitter/Transducer " can be had on Amazon for $35. But would need to tied to a relay which would be used to set an alarm/red light something akin to septic systems when the pump fails. Most home owners do not need a "low water pressure switch" such as used in commercial "fire sprinkler systems". So this would have to be custom made to keep the cost down.
    Finally there are a lot of Wifi-based leak and water usage packages costing in mid's $$$, not sure if they would warn if you pressure started dropping etc..
    Either now or into the future, let me know if you want to know more. See how other off-grid people handle this. Maybe irrelevant for most, its the geek in me. I would use an Arduino/Raz PI microcontrollers to build this. But these microcontrollers would be used to handle multiple various sensors not just this one. Basically all of my off-grid equipment would have sensors just like I worked on offshore in the oilfield. Kind of a habit.
    I noticed you picked the 'Palm Nailer', I had to put straps on conventional trusses and the inspector was baffled how I good I was at driving nails. He kept asking if the trusses were mfg.
    Anyway another tool, a unfortunately more expensive, but when you need a third or forth hand it will make your day.
    Rockwell JawHorse Portable... I have had this one for probably 10 years, the rubber matts gave out after about 5 years, but I bought some rubber 12" squares from HD instead of replacing from mfg. The one I got gave me the ability to handle 4x8 sheets of plywood, which coupled with a table saw gave me that backend support. I did not need to tightly clamp it down, just used it as a back-guide. When I bought this, it was one-of-kind and yea this one is not cheap. There are now multiple others on the market costing a chunk less, not sure the quality.
    Like the 'Palm Nailer' it is not something you will use everyday and is quite a bit more expensive, but as your kids return to school, it may be of some help. Hope it helps.

    I always remove the foot valve on deep well pumps. I install an above ground check valve. It makes future pump removals a lot easier. After the check valve I install a Cycle Stop Valve which will lengthen your pump's life spam as well as providing you with a constant pressure. Your pump must be capable of producing at least 50psi. foo proper function. Great videos you have.

    Watching your water setup with interest. I went a slightly different route. Same 2500 gallon tank, using a generator to drive the well pump, for now. For the pump from cistern to house, I'm using a separate solar booster pump. Gravity feed cistern to pump, no check valve and a delivery of 45 psi. I did it this way because I like having a backup system. If I have a problem with the main array, I can still pump water to the house. If I have a problem with the pump array, the main array can still drive the cistern pump. And can still use the generator to pump water from the well. Hopefully it will all work as planned.

    Great job Martin. The only recommendation I can see is maybe adding a Tracer Wire on top of the conduit. Here in West Virginia its not only a recommendation its also a requirement for under ground electric, gas line, and TV cable, and phone lines. This is for a reference to show any future excavating work being done to be able to locate your water line and electrical conduit in the ground. We also have to put a yellow caution tape about 4-6"s on top of the buried lines. Laws and recommendations vary from state to state.

    The pipe wrench trick is a good one for holding the weight when you need to rest...
    When I lived in SW Florida I needed to replace my well pump ... I was working by myself so I backed my pickup next to the well head and used it's trailer hitch -- I wrapped the rope from the
    pump-&-pipe assembly around the hitch ball as I pulled it out of the well head (cutting the pipe every 20 feet).
    Did the same thing for the install except I glued the 20 foot lengths of pipe together with couplers as I lowered it down ... had to lower and hold the pump 9 times as I added the 20 foot sections together until I got to the 180 feet mark (10-15 feet below the water table level of my well)
    Had to do the same thing again several years later when the pump failed (the glued pipe held up without any issues)... Several years after that I had to add more pipe length because the water table level dropped by 25 feet

    I would have used the LB for ease to replace if required.

    Nice rock free dirt for most part. I have a 220VAC pump, is yours 120. Have you seen what differences are for the 2 pumps. Mine is also 20 feet from the house, did you pick yours that distance or was it just optimal?

    I think you should have put a pull box before you did the two 90's, because that is a very long run, and the 90's will creat a lot of drag!

    Did you calculate for voltage drop on this pump run?

    I put a permanent length of pipe in the pitiless adapter about 1 1/2 foot shorter than the well pipe top to pitiless adapter to make it easier next time. I also put 3/8 rope on well pump so I can use it to help pull my 450ft well pump up.
