the word is "hundreds" of psi, as in pressure capable of bursting pipe and connections - if you have a 350-deep well, pump set at 300 feet, the water pressure in the full-of-water drop pipe will be over a hundred psi above the check valve on the pump discharge, and that is before you energize the motor
