Hi everybody, please bear with me, i am building a beach front house in the philippines and would like to know the best type of pump for my needs, just a modest house, water for drinking and washing etc, is there such a thing as a bullet proof pump.

Also most of the locals just hammer a pipe in the ground and use a hand pump, obviously i need more capacity, question, does anybody know how to dig a well in sand, is it a question of digging an enormous hole and then try and use concrete liners of some kind?.

Apologies for the long winded post, and thanks.
