Re: How do we fish a nylon rope out of 200 ft well?
The rope is probably blocking the intake causing the pressure problems.
If you can get hold of a waterproof inspection camera (like they use for sewers) with a long lead, you may be able to drop that down to figure out where best to grab the rope. You might be able to use a long drain snake with a spiral tip to snag the rope. Come to think of it, a sewer cleaning company might have all you need. Of course you're sticking it down into your drinking water well so maybe that's not such a wonderful idea after all.
Or you could drill a new well and install a new pump and plumbing.
