You will have to have a check valve at the space between the tee and the well head.
Are you going to put a float switch in the tank?
If you use a pressure switch the tank will have to be able to hold pressure.
Are you going to have the water tested for hardness and bacteria?
That is a lot of head lift, You will need a big pump.
From my experience, don't use plastic couplers or check valves on plastic pipe. Use brass couplers.
