You need to install a good pump if you plan to use well water. The pumps vary depending on size.

  • Connect the submersible electrical cable through the hole in the bore cap, then fix it.
  • Put down the pump with the cable on the ground to ensure it is at the end of the well.
  • Ensure you block the ends of the pipe so no dirt or stones can enter.
  • Connect the pump to the pipe and ensure it fits, then connect the caps at the other end.
