Well pump mounting question
Is this normal?
Have a well at a rental property. Works great and water clear.
Has a submersible pump. But concrete cover does not sit tight because it rest on a ½” pipe.
So a ½” gap all around. Is this normal?
If you remove the cover there is about 30” of ½” galvanized pipe laying across the opening.
This seems to be used to hold the pump suspended in the center of the well. Then a cable runs down to the pump.
Has 1 ¼” of the black poloy pipe that runs down to the pump.
I am guessing they just did not want to have only the pipe holding the pump. Pipe goes thru the wall of the well about 24” down from the top of the well casing. Has a plastic/poloy elbow, which I guess may otherwise break from the weight of the pump.
What Is normal?
