help! which well pump will work

I just bought my home a year ago. It has a well, but the pump is trashed, it leaks, the tank is rusted and leaks. I recently bought this pump and tank combo: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200039924_200039924

then realized this pump has only 1 port, and the old pump has 2 ports with 2 pipes going down into the well. Can I make this work or would the old setup be better? and if a 2 port pump would work better, could I use this one: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200311417_200311417 But I don't think I would need the jet assembly it says is required, would I?

The new pump I just bought was damaged during shipment, and I am going to have to return it, so if I need the other pump instead, I should be able to swap it. Also I might add this is not for my home water supply, just for my garden.
Thanks for any help

The http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200311417_200311417

will work. What you have is a deep water well. That means the water depth is over 25 feet. I prefer submersible pumps. I think they are more reliable.

You have a deep well pump with the ejector down in the well. When you replace the pump you should also replace the ejector to match the pump.

The first pump you bought has the jet assembly right at the pump. these types of shallow well pumps can only work on wells about 15-20' deep.

If you have a deeper well, you have to use the type of pump that has a remote jet assembly placed at the bottom of the well.

Most new wells use a submersible pump because they are more efficient and pump higher volumes of water.
