Submersible vs non- for shallow well
I have a dug well, with a static water level about 8 feet below grade. I'm building a house about 200 feet away, and about 20 feet higher. I intend to pul a large poly tank in the cellar, and slow-pump water during the day. I can easily install either a submersible, such as a SunPump, or a surface unit such as a Dankoff Slowpump (though the latter would need to go on a platform in the well, for freeze protection.) Cost is about the same. So the question for you all is: which approach would you take, and why? Thanks!
