Step 1: Remove the pit
See this post for details.
Step 2: Pull the pump.
I'm a retired reservoir engineer who did a bunch of time as a production engineer. I understand about pumps (a bit, though my buddy Swade has me cleanly in this department). I thought they would need a rig of some kind to pull the pump. Nope. The fine gentleman from Aaron's and I did it by hand. The data I had on this well was nonsense; it's only 60' deep (not the +100' I was told), and the pump was only set about 50' down. So when we pulled it, the pump and the "tubing" (2" poly) fit in my yard.

|Pit adaptor strapped to the casing. New connections almost in place.|
|Cut is 18" above grade|
|Pump in hand, off to the ladder to run it|
|Culvert moments from being removed. Note the dirt pile|

|We have to fill the hole about halfway up the red part on the casing|
|A 6:00 pm view. Lots left.|
|Lots of little fixes|

Tomorrow, we finish filling the hole.
