The cables left behind from a satellite or cable install can be re-used. If you are still connected to the cable company, even if just for internet or phone service, be sure that no cable signals are connected to the OTA antenna system.

If your roof is wood framing and asphalt shingles, attic mounting is likely to work well. Metal roofing and HVAC ducts are going to block or reflect OTA signals. If you choose attic mounting, a larger, rather than smaller antenna will help overcome some of the signal lost as it penetrates the building structure.

Can you list the make and model of the TVs?
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.)
