    I recently hand dug a shallow well to 25 feet. I initially wanted to install just a hand pump to water my garden. It worked great, however our garden has gotten big enough now the hand pump takes way to long to water the garden. The casing on the well is 1 3/4", and I can not find a pump the will work with that diameter. I don't know enough about well pumps, and need some advice at affordable options to get water from my well for my garden.

    Tell us more about that dimension and the well. You dug the well with an excavator, or what?

    Are you referring to the pipe sticking down the hole, or what?

    the casing is the sleeve going down dirt would just cave in so wells are cased in pipe
