Fancy. The guys who put my well in last year just used marettes at the well cap. Still working so I've let it be.
Either your well is super shallow, there are splices in the well below the water line, or the pump was ordered with the length of cable preinstalled. Off the shelf pumps generally only have a couple of feet of lead that you splice into close to the pump then run the cable up to the surface.

Its 125 feet deep.. I belive the lower splice was done at the supplier. Seems like the best route to go if possible. I can't remember what they had for a a connection. Vaguely remember some clear connectors/shrink tube. 2 years ago though so hard to say now. I'd think a burial rated kit would do.
The splice kit just the cowboy referenced has clear heat shrink with sealer inside. It's fairly thick to protect the splice from abrasion as well.
