    Exactly my situation. Our neighbors well was 150' deep, ours was 300' - they had a bad iron problem, we did not. Except from that rusting galv pipe.

    Looking at it, a significant amount of...

    TJanak, Our rusting galvanized pipe - 220 feet...

    TJanak,

    Our rusting galvanized pipe - 220 feet of it, was replaced by PVC Sch 80. The pipe was in the well 11 years approx. We changed out the pump in 2003, and were shocked how much rust fell...
  3. I can tell you what we experienced....

    Hello:

    When our submersible pump died in Spring 2003, (high desert So Cal, clear but mineral laden well), they pulled the pump and it's galvanized piping.

    Tons of rust fell off - the pipes had...
  4. Anyone know "Packer ejector" functionality ?

    Gentlemen:

    Thanks so much for your insight & help.

    Does a 2" packer ejector send water both ways, down inside the 2" well casing, then up again inside the 'drop pipe' ?

    Or is air pressure...
  5. Thanks for your reply....

    Peter,

    Yes sir, that makes sense. With no readily available source of Schedule 80, it's 'back to the drawing board', it would seem....

    Gentlemen, thanks for your helpful replies.

    With what you all are making plain, I will with any future wells, drill large enough for a submersible pump.

    Honestly, I was hoping to not have to...

    Peter, thanks for your reply

    What were the wells cased in & their size ?

    Mine is 2" PVC....

  8. Thanks for your reply.....

    Thanks for confirming, Gary.

    On Sch 40, do you mean with carefully solvent welded joints or using M/F Adaptors or ???

    Thanks,

    David Alan :)

    Thoughts on hand pump.....

    Loghead,

    Can I ask if you had located a nice quality handpump that will work effectively from your 102 ft depth, and at what price ?

    David Alan :)
  10. PE pipe work for deep well jet "packer ejector" ?

    Elsewhere, one fellow commented (in Florida) that he sees PE pipe used on deep well jet pump ejectors.

    (He didn't say in what size casing exactly...)

    I am trying to set a 'packer ejector' down...
  11. THANKS for your reply....

    Aquaman,

    Do you mean typical thin wall slip x slip couplings for Sch 40 ** ?

    :confused:

    I am not sure of the delivery potential of the well / aquafer, so the info with the pump...
  12. May I ask for clarification, sir ? Are you...

    May I ask for clarification, sir ? Are you saying this because the std size won't fit or will block the flow ?

    The reason I ask is I can obtain 'insert pvc' couplings that keep the basic sch 40...
  13. thanks for your reply....

    Peter,

    As I'm new to this type of installation, I can only guess, that PE is more flexible like hose, not mostly rigid like Sch 40 / 80 pipe, correct ?

    It doesn't seem like flexible pipe would...
  14. Yes, what you say makes good sense ! But, even...

    Yes, what you say makes good sense !

    But, even the tech / customer service guy there (Myers / Water Ace in Ohio) said the thin wall couplings were 'hard to find'.

    So, in light of that, I'm...
  15. Thanks for your help. I know the threaded thin...

    Thanks for your help.

    I know the threaded thin wall 1 1/4" couplings would be ideal, but they're just not available locally. (small town east Texas)

    So, the bell end is too large OD to fit...
  16. THANKS for the reply.....

    Gary, thanks for your take on things.

    I wasn't sure if the solvent weld joints were strong enough, compared to threaded joints.

    The other aspect is the size of the threaded couplers. It's hard...
  17. Sch 40 solvent glue joint OK 4 single pipe jet pump to 95' ?

    Hi all:

    What a great forum. I appreciate any attention & help you can provide.
