you slide a small pipe down inside your well casing, on the end of this pipe you add a diffuser that makes the air come out in small bubbles, the top end of the pipe hooks to a small air pump, something like an aquarium aerator
the air bubbles out the diffuser at the bottom and lifts the water on its way to the surface
its truly amazing how much water can be lifted from any depth this way
just make sure your air pump is one of the clean oilless types, sweetwater makes a real nice one used for aquaculture operations
