Be prepared to use an outdoor antenna if the ebay antenna fails to do well. The SR-8 is not going to have much difference in gain.

The CM4228 is too directional for me to consider it in this application, I'd use an ANT-751R or HBU-22 or 33.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
