deep well

Hi, I have a deep well that i just pulled the old drop pipe up from. The well is 250ft deep, the water is 117ft down. The old drop pipe was 168ft down. The well pipe is 2" dia. Any ideas on what type of pump i could use? My usage will be watering the garden and some fruit trees. Thanks. Larry

Larry,
You said the well pipe was 2". Is this the well casing you're talking about that's 2"?
If so, you're going to have to use a deep well jet pump and a 2" packer assembly.
You could probably expect about 3-5 gpm using a 1 hp deep well jet pump at that depth to water.

Yes, it is a 2" well casing. Could a guy use plastic pipe with that set up or should i use metal? Thanks Larry

Larry,
There's no reason that I can think of that you can't use plastic pipe. You should consider black poly pipe. A 2" packer assembly has rubber seals on it that seal against the side of the well casing. Might be a little tough installing it, but should work ok.
