Here's some work done by a plumber. I know of zero well and pump guys capable of this and even if they were they couldn't touch it without a plumbing license. Maybe you should move out of hillbilly county LOL

While I'm not doubting your folks do good work, in my experience they are the exception rather than the rule.
I suspect the work shown above would not pass in CA because of seismic zone considerations--I'm not seeing straps and the like.
Wasn't done in California. An experienced, licensed professional plumber from Connecticut did that work. What you don't see is the pump and piping in the well which he also did. I can't speak for California but in the North East I'd bet that better than 75% of the plumbers regularly sell, install and service pumps and filtration equipment. My own company has 13 plumbers and they all work on such. We sell a lot of pumps, tanks, pipe, filtration and the like. It's part of the trade and where some folks get the notion that it is not is beyond me or more likely just ignorance on their part.
A good plumber can follow a blueprint, which this extraordinarily weird setup had to have. That pump went out of favor about 40 years ago, by the way. Must be a regional thing. The sticks is MAINE, by the way.
Plumbers, in most parts do not touch wells, thanks be to god. And foolish to say a pump and well guy cant do that bizarre concoction of pipes.
Mine is bigger than yours... Lol, :p
I carry mine in a wheelbarrow
you got ripped off big time, a bladder tank can be 2-4 hundred dollars. i installed my own is about 3 hours.
