    An air compressor will work to help get pumps out too. This would be for pumps that are sand locked or locked in with rust and debris that has settled onto the pump. We use a 375 cfm, although this might be a little more then is needed for this kind of work.

    I've heard of down the hole hammers, but jars are used at the bottom not the top.

    An air compressor could do a lot of good in wells for different things. But it wouldn't help in the instance of the Sta-Rite stuck in the casing.
