I recommend that if you have a well you should have a simple way to obtain the water from that well when the SHTF. Even if you have a generator or solar powered water pump you should have a backup. You can never be too prepared.
Below are some photos of my Well Bucket. Although I have not tested it in my well, it seems to work pretty good in my bathtub!
Live the Motto - Be Prepared!
Parts: 3" diameter PVC Schedule 40 pipe, 3" diameter PVC end cap, Plumb Pak Red Rubber Sheet, 100ft Nylon rope, 2 Washers with 1/4" hole, 1/4" nylon nut, 1/4" screw, PVC primer and cement.
Outline on End Cap is a little crooked. LOL

Finished Well Bucket. FYI, I cut the PVC pipe to 3 feet length.
Drilled 2 holes to top of Well Bucket for rope attachment. Remember to use a good knot. For all the Boy Scouts out there, you do remember how to tie a Bowline?
