      I am in the process of restoring an old Sears & Roebuck house in Clifton, VA. The house was built in 1925, and presumably the well is just as old. The pump set up is currently a Jet pump/pressure tank – not sure how old. This system, however, needs to be replaced and I have a decision to make. This is (obviously) not my area of expertise so I am trying to get some more info. Should I switch to a submersible set-up, or simply replace the Jet/Tank set-up? Why? Also, how much (ball park) should either cost? I am not sure how deep the well is, but I do know that , except for a vent hose, it is NOT above ground at any point. I appreciate and advise you can give. You can email me at the address below.

      Thanks!

      If you are doing the work the easy way is just replace what you need to.

      If the well casing diameter is to small a submersible might not work.

      If you go with a complete up-grade call a plumber/well installer for help and instal the submersible.

      I have done both, it’s all what you think you want and need.
