    If you got the pitless off and out of the way, and you can still see the drop pipe, you can put a loop over the pipe with a nylon strap and pull on that. I just wonder if your pump is stuck, which is the reason the pitless broke?

    Or it is a piece of sch 21 or 40 pvc and the adapter broke off.

    You can make a tool from a piece of steel pipe & some long bolts welded on at an angle to see if you can snag the wire and then pull the pump.
