Speed, I was reading some old posts and i came across one and you stated if you cant pull up water with a pitcher pump a jet pump wont work either.

I was at the lake house last July and I hooked up a hand pump after I rebuilt the leathers in it. I primed it and pumped for 10 minutes. I felt resistance but it wouldnt surface.

My neighbor came by with a piece of lead on a string. I took off the hand pump he dropped the lead and the water was 65 feet down if Im not mistaken.

This pipe is about 15 feet away from the main pipe connected to the jet pump. Back in the 80s we used to have the hand pump connected to it. Is 65 feet too deep for a saindpoint well? If so what are my options? Whats the ballpark range to have someone come out and drill a deeper well?
