We had an old well pump in our yard, our neighbor who has lived here forever said that it was non-functioning. We started to dig out the dirt and found it was attached to a tank. We would like to at least remove the pump. Any advice on how to go about doing this? We have the pump itself detached but the the long bar that goes down the throat of the well is still attached, we are not sure if we can just cut that off.....what will happen?
