Abstract: A well pump system can include piping having an end positioned proximate to an entrance end of a borehole (e.g., a water well), and piping having an end positioned proximate to an opposing end of the borehole. A connector can couple the piping together, where the connector has ports for aligning the piping to form a longitudinal passage. The well pump system may further include a valve in the piping that can open and close the longitudinal passage with an actuator to be actuated from the entrance end of the borehole. A pump may be coupled to the piping, and a rod can be used to operate the pump. An end of the rod can be positioned between the opposing end of the borehole and the valve and connected to a second rod inserted through the longitudinal passage when the valve is open to operate the pump.
