The Slowpump has a suction limit of 20 feet which means that it can't pull water up more than 20 feet. If the well has a 6" casing then we can use some things called Close Elbows that allow the pump to be installed down inside the well. In this situation though you have to be careful that the pump does not ever get submerged under water that is rising up in the well casing. The close elbows are $25 per pair. Once the water gets to the pump then it can easily lift it the remaining 25 feet to the tank.
