There will be a float switch at the tank, the water will be tested, there is a check valve built into the pump but a second one is a good idea, and I use brass fittings.
The cistern enables me to use a smaller pump, run it for longer durations with fewer starts, and be able to flush when the power goes out. Most wells around here are half this deep, but I know of a few that are hundreds of feet deeper.
