did they use plastic drop pipe to the pump?
if so,the hatch may not work so well?
That's a lot of work to do when a pitless adapter solves all your concerns. No building needed, no electric heater, easy access to the well to change pumps and less cost.
Which is why I did it that way.

I guess they like to spend money.
In a lot of cases it isn't what makes sense, it's do what the rest of them do. Although a homeowner like me, with a measuring tape, drill, and hole saw, can install this system, people call a contractor. Now, he's never even heard of this, and his first words are "That'll never work"

Started on the well house yesterday. It's 4x6 feet and 4' high.

Corners are 4x4 posts in concrete. Exterior will be lap siding. Tin roof.

I pulled a 20 amp 120v circuit to the well house from the main panel. In the well house it's feeding an outlet and then two light switches. One light will be a heat lamp. The other a plan bulb. Figure if the pressure switch ever went bad it'll probably at night after dark.

While your running wire, run a line out from the pump switch to an outside light. This will let you know the pump is running. very handy to know if the pump is cycling correctly or running continuously.

Far as I'm concerned this is ready for inspection.

Welp I found a problem.

Decided to run the shower the other day. It's not supposed to shower in the wall.
