Jet pump too Submersible pump

I currently have 6 foot pit with a 110v Jet pump/tank in it and an 80 foot well. I would like to know if it is possible to replace the jet pump with a submersible pump. I am really tired of messing with leaks/prime problems and the noise of the jet pump.

Yes, it is possible, as long as the well is cased with at least 4" casing. You'll need to know where the water level in the well is, etc., in order to size the pump properly. You shouldn't need but a 1/2 hp, or 3/4 hp, at most.
