I used a small, domestic booster pump in a house I used to live in. I think it was a multiple stage booster pump; it pulled water from the well, up into the house, rather than being placed in the well and pushing up the water. I really prefer the multipump type.
Having the pump right up at the surface where I can see it, and check the valves myself made it easy to work on. I think it's a good idea to know your own house, to know how everything works, so if there is a breakdown you can figure out what it is, and maybe fix it yourself.
