I have a well - it is 20 meters deep and the last 5 meters are full of water...
A few years ago I tried to buy a pump to allow me to use the well water for irrigation... it was a magnetic submersible electric pump of Russian construction.
I allowed my neighbour to use it and he left it on overnight, the well water dried up and the pump ceased to function. I sent it back to the seller (I am in France) and he agreed to repair it... but it only worked for a few hours then stopped. The seller said that one cannot use the pump to provide continuous pressure for a sprinkler or the like... only to allow the water to gush out wherever the end of the hose happens to be.

So... my question is... does there exist a type of pump that can raise water 15 - 20 meters and provide continuous water pressure? (Since I am in France, I want the type of pump, not the brand/manufacturer).
