The Heavy duty pully is highly recommend with this product.
We encourage everyone with a drilled well to have a WaterBoy Well Bucket on hand for emergencies, even if they have solar power, wind generators or other alternative energy systems for retrieving water. Storms or other disasters can temporarily or permanently disable those systems, but a well bucket is always ready to go.
A well bucket is the simplest, least expensive way to retrieve water from a drilled well. Unlike easily bendable galvanized steel well buckets intended only for temporary use, the WaterBoy is a reliable bucket for everyday use and easy to operate. Simply attach a rope to the bucket, lower it into a well, draw it up and empty into a container

Very nice business/people to order from, had small issue and they informed me their supplier was closed during the first week of my order so it took two weeks to receive. Mark was very helpful in finding this out and informing me when it would ship. When the supplier did open it took 4 days to arrive at my home and was packaged well.Just a note: even the owner answers the phone ready for any questions you may have. Will definitly order from this business again, very professional.

What makes the valve open to release the water?
R GRISWOLD –
You just tilt the Well bucket from the top and pour it out
Pam galicki and R GRISWOLD, You squeeze the lever at the top of the bucket and the water will be release from the bottom of the bucket. No need to tilt or pour. See this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuLZaDWjlTc
Would the 2″ work without removing the pump and pipe, or would it snag? Top of the water is about 150′ below, and I think it is a 6″ casing.

Problematic, but probably not
