    Wonder if I could put the 3/4 brass bleeder in a "tee" with another "tee" welded to the first "tee" with a plug for access to th bleeder. Then the water from the bleeder could be piped back down the...
  2. I'm going to replace the bad check valve this...

  8. What should I do now? (virtical turbine with galvanized tank)

    OK, here's the deal. Back in 1959 or so, my father installed a well system at the depth of 90 ft. He used a virtical turbine with a foot valve, (he thought it would be better to keep the column full...
