    I need to pull the pump from my well because of a leak or faulty check valve. What will I need for this or is it best to leave for the Pro's?

    It depends on how deep it is. How deep is it?

    Is that where the pump is hanging or is that the well depth?

    You need a way to lift it, and at least 2 large pipe wrenches, a pipe brake to keep it from sliding into the hole, at least 2 large sets of vice grips as safety catches, about 3 rolls of black tape, a knife, and a large wrench to slide the pitless guts away from the casing. The pipe sections are 20' tall. Hand lifting a 100+ footer is going to be very difficult at best.
