    Im looking at flowjack.com
    Any experts out there?
    My well is 380 ft.
    Static water at 150
    Any comments on this one or any other types being marketed?
    Compressed air types..who knows how many other ways.
    of course Im looking at only drinking water at that point.
    FYI Plants and trees(hybred cottonwoods) will be on their own.
    cacti next time.

    The web site you are talking about has several pumps but I do not think any will lift water from a well with a static water level of 150 foot. Their deepest pump states that: It is suited for static water levels at 130-140 feet or less.... .Most non electric pumps that will lift water over 150 feet are going to be very expensive. My thought would be to just get a generator and then you can power other items if needed, not just a water pump. I included several links of pumps that will lift water 150 foot. You could just stock up ahead of time and save a bundle.
