My vote is pay the man. Water to my house is not something I'll comfortably fuck with.

Side note, I still have yet to find my well. We've been here 4 months now. Not a clue where the hell the damn thing is.

Chris- are you sure that 1500$ was for a deep well? In WL most people have shallow wells used for irrigation, and having those dug plus materials is about 1500$. A 300' foot deep well with a pump, I'd be thinking would be more in the 3-6k range with specialized equipment. A 10' piece of galvanized well pipe ran me 50$ a piece when I dug mine.

I'd guess Chris means 1500 to pull old pump and put a new one back down - not drill a new one

That's still really cheap. Most are 3k plus.

I asked a coworker who is a builder and a know it all lol. He said the walls might be collapsed in on itself (rock,soil) or it could just be stuck in the sediment on the bottom.

I have it about 2 feet up now. Not getting any easier so I'm going to guess it's just because of the weight of the water. One way valve in the pump so you have to lift the pipe, pump, and all the water in the pipe.

I have a plan now. Headed to Lowe's to get some shit.

if the pipe is 1" diameter x 300'... you're probably at ~100+ lbs of water?

Went to Lowe's to get stuff and my cousin who works there asked his coworker in plumbing. He told us about a local place that had one that they rent out. Called the place and the girl who works there made the mistake of telling me that they had one...only to find out afterwards that I wasn't a contractor and she couldn't rent it to me. Called a contractor friend and he said I could use his insurance etc, but they said had to have an account there. Manager ended up letting me use it pending that I put down the cost of the puller on my credit card ($4k). Just finished getting the pump out! What a sweet rig that is!!

Thanks for all your help!
