    Default Have a well but want access to it when the power goes out

    I recently moved from FL to PA. The house I live in is my wife's house which she owned before we got married. It has a well that, I am told, had to be drilled down nearly a 100 feet to reach the water.

    My problem is, when our power goes out (which happens a couple times a year) we are unable to access the water. Was curious if there were kits or something similiar to enable access to wells in these periods of no power.

    I'm also looking ahead to if and when TSHTF and there isn't any 'power'.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    A generator may be your best bet if the water is down 100 feet from the surface. If you have a submersible pump, it may have to be removed and that can be a lot of trouble.
