When we took over the property in the fall, the water pump was not working. I could not get it up to pressure. I am guessing that there is a crack somewhere the intake or the pump or pressure tank is pooched. That being said after spending too many weekends at my inlaws cottage getting their water pump sorted out, I want to have my own that works when I arrive (easy button?) and replace this circa 1950s pump and tank. It is a three season property with lake water intake. Any suggestions on convertible jet pumps? I've heard anything from Canadian tire or HD are crappy? The current pump plugs into an outlet, not even a gfci, so that needs to be fixed too. It is currently in a utility room that I will convert to a bedroom so I will either create a closet for the pump at the back of the room or move it outside and build a small pump house to keep it out of the weather... Any suggestions?

I have drilled 5 wells by hand in my life and set up the pumps. Submersable is the only way to go in my humble opinion.
