The Shallow Well Pitcher Pump is used only in shallow well applications. The water level in the well is what determines the difference between "deep" and "shallow" wells.

If your well is 400 feet deep but the static* water level below ground is less than 25 feet, you have a shallow well. However if you have a 40 foot well and the static* water level is 30 foot from ground level, you have a deep well. The Pitcher Pump will only work on the shallow well.

The laws of physics and gravity are the reason that pumps are separated into two categories, shallow well and deep well. You can only pull a vacuum to lift water from a depth of 32 feet at sea level, measured from the pump to the top of the water. However this is only true in a perfect world. Here in the real world, we call the theoretical 32 feet 25 actual feet. These pumps will lift the water 25 feet with quite a bit of resistance. Pitcher Pumps are great for shallow wells with a water level of less than 20 feet from the bottom of the pump (That is where the water is actually being pulled from). Don't hook a Pitcher Pump to a well that has a static water level of 20 feet and raise the pump up to sink level in a cabin, which is 5 feet higher than the ground level. It won't work!

*Static Water Level = Top of the water column standing in a well measured from ground level.
