Thanks everyone for your feedback and nice comments.
Just to add that the credit must go to my friends Graham and Babis who came up with the ideas and practical help that solved most of the issues. As for falling down the well, it's hard to do so when the borehole diameter is just 12 inches, unless you are a cat I suppose.
Here is the explanation for the cloudy water.
Not 1 km from my home was the Black Hole of Temploni. It was a sink hole about 5 meters in diameter and 120 meters deep that appeared after heavy rain and which went right down to the underground lake that feeds my borehole/ well. The lake is the remnant of the original river that flowed out from the Ropa Lake that existed in the Ropa Valley until 16th century, when the Venetians drained it by cutting the channel to Ermones.
The amount of soil and rock that fell into the underground lake must have exceeded 5,000 tonnes and this probably explains why my well pump failed and why the water became rather murky until everything settled!
