    Holy cow, that is quite a lot of weight pressing down on quite a number of coupling sleeves. Have you sniff-tested them all? Honestly, regardless of whether it's the cause - if it were me I'd rip...

    Thanks, will do. I can't say it will be an easy job, access-wise. Some questions first:

    1 - Any advice on placement before I get in there and start cutting? See diagram below. Should I put one...

    Thanks for the info - very helpful! Yes, purchased at ACE hardware. Not sure who manufactures it.

    By "male insert X" I assume you mean the final down-pipe bushing that goes into the pump flange?...

    Thanks. Yes, one length of tubing IIRC. I figure that if I'm pulling the pump it's only $50 to replace the tubing.

    Due to my well-head setup (its in the garage floor) I'd know if it were leaking...

    Thanks. I just bought a 3/4 hp pump and 100' of Cresline HD125 1" tubing. Various barbed couplings. I'll limp through the weekend and pull it on Monday when the pros are back at work in case I run...

    I realized it is not likely that I will be able to hear any leaks in the well since my water is only 15' below grade and the pump is 65' below grade. So unless the leak is in the top 15' of...

    All the bits are on the tee at the tank - pressure gauge, switch, check valve, 75 psi bleeder, drain valve, home shut-off valve.

    Thanks - I didn't realize the pump has a check valve. The old tank...

    Don't understand the coupling

    Thanks for the tip on cutting.

    This is a vertical pipe, coming up from the slab and into the house. The clamped rubber sleeve doesn't sound like it will support the stack structure above the...

    It sounds then like I have a good plan, but I need help understanding how to make the cast-to-pvc conversion. If I cut the stack at the 32" mark, my questions are:

    1 - are there any precautions I...

    Lord, I have 8 year-old twin boys. It does get better, but I wouldn't go back to where you are for all the money in the free world!
