    I have 3 - 2" 20' deep wells that I would like to pump the water out of to help keep it from getting into the basement. Does anyone know of a small submersible or have a different idea that might work?

    Thanks

    Redrill to 4". Dewatering (lowering the water table) may be an expensive proposition.

    You can probably use the 2" casing as the suction line and just attach it to a shallow well jet pump.

    One jet pump could be used for all three casings. One would need to monitor the water level so as not to suck air and lose prime.
