You've done a fine job so far.
Pulling a pump that deep is not a one man operation and if silt is built up around the pump, without equipment to lift the pump out of it you may not be able to DIY.
Either way, you won't be able to work on the wet end or motor yourself. The wet end can be fixed at a pump supply house or by a pump guy that does it. Usually the pump or motor is replaced. You can replace the motor or the wet end yourself, it's 4 nuts to separate the motor from the wet end after undoing teh pump from the pipe and cutting the motor leads/power cable.
As to not being popular indoors... ask the non cheering section ingrates how they'd like to be without water for a few days instead. And tell them they should learn to appreciate their DIYer hero that's willing to donate his time and white knuckled nervous energy going off doing something he's never even seen done before, especially on his few days off!! And saving them hundreds of dollars to boot. And if it's cold outdoors or not, I'd make'em bundle up and stand close to take notes and family album type pictures of their previously unsung hero.
