Very shallow water supply maybe, but no kind of actual 'well'.

If you are using it to pull water from a water source then yeah that changes things, maybe, but in OPs case the pressure from the volume of water in his storage tank permanently negates any need for prime or to ever think about it.

Regardless there is no point to remove a check valve from a system like this.
