Congrats!!!! Very proud of you :) Improvements will come - for now you have a place to set your feet on and call it yours! I don't know about wells so I can't offer advice but in the meantime I would start hauling water on to the place in whatever type of containers I could fine - water is everythong, IMHO. Again, yea!!! for you!
Craigslist has a lot of free stuff.. Heck, you could pick up a free standing jacuzzi or a redwood wine barrel. Plan out your options and keep looking for what you need.
Until then, for small water store, food quality buckets can be had for the asking at the deli section of some supermarkets, as they mostly just toss 'em either in the trash or the recycling all you have to do is wash 'em really well, and slosh some peroxide (100% in 'em to kill the germs). Ask for them to save the lids and tell 'em its for an art project or gardening project. They get a bit leery if you tel 'em it's for storing water. BTW store in a cool shaded spot, and just stack 'em up. Wouldn't bury them..
I don't know how deep the well is but you may be able to pull the pump by hand. You can take the pump to a shop and have it tested. The pump motor is not to expencive. WHEN THE PUMP IS OUT OF THE WELL COVER THE WELL. DAMHIKT Measure the depth to the water. if it is less tha 50 feet a hand pump can be bought and installed. A well bucket and a rope can be used to bring up water 5 gallons at a time (labor intensive)Water can be storeed in any food safe container for drinking and in other containers for other projects. Rain water can also be collected in the 277 gallon totes from roofs. Good Luck
