    Yes, it is either 20' or 40' above the pump, where two 20' sections of drop pipe join. I cannot remember which. There are two 20' sections and a short 5' or so section.
  2. New punp, tank, plumbing, and... vibration.

    We had our submersible pump, motor, drop pipe, line to the well house, and tank all replaced. you can see the thread I started about it here-

    Yeah, the worst part is that damn few of them are elected, most are career bureaucrats expanding their domains looking for other excuses to save the world. The EPA was good idea in the beginning, I...

    You are referring to a kink caused by a bend, and not a pressure collapse that flattens the pipe?

    If there is that much ground movement, it will be the least of my concerns- we are in a class 4...
  5. undergound well pipe connections- rust resistance, electrolysis, etc-

    This is an addendum to my earlier "earthquake resistant pitless connection" thread.

    I now have a brass hose barb with 1" poly for the pitless connection. This line tees at the tank house with...
  6. We used 1" poly.

    We used 1" poly.

    I checked with falcon, they do not reccomend the SS flex for underground use. Tell me about the flexible glueable PVC?
  8. Best type of earthquake resistant connection from pitless to tank?

    After finding my well problem was a busted off 1" PVC to MPT fitting screwed into the pitless adapter, I started thinking about some type of less brittle way than PVC pipe to get from the well to the...

    Do you have personal experience with the simple pump, or are your comments generic for all hand pumps?
  10. Today the well pump would not shut off at all,...

    Today the well pump would not shut off at all, the pressure would not get over 55 psi.
    So I started to dig to the water line, no sense paying the well guys the big bucks to run a shovel...
    When...

    It seems like a bigger tank would work to reduce cycling and have a bit more water on hand for the short power outages- usually we lose power for a couple of hours or so, so I don't bother to go...

    About 20' lift, but I want to pump into the pressure tank- simple pump says their unit can do this.
  13. I found out they use a Franklin motor, and it is...

    I found out they use a Franklin motor, and it is a single phase pump- the "motor control" is just a couple of capacitors in a box.
  14. Sun around here is a rare thing in the winter- I...

    Sun around here is a rare thing in the winter- I want a completely redundant system also- don't want to rely on the electric pump totally.
  15. Looking for a good hand pump backup for well head

    I plan to install a hand pump on top of the well cap as part of my well re-pump. I am looking at the "simple pump" brand- does anyone have suggestions, opinions, advice etc? We lose power a lot,...
  16. I think the guy who originally installed my...

    I think the guy who originally installed my system put in a low gpm pump, and a large tank, to keep cycling to a minimum. It seemed to work fine.

    Two questions-
    would a Grundfos .5 hp pump have...
  17. Any comments on the Grundfos pumps- that is what...

    Any comments on the Grundfos pumps- that is what my installer recommended. there was no mention of a "cycle stop valve" at all in my quote.
  18. Agreed! That is what I normally do- the hand...

    Agreed! That is what I normally do- the hand pump is for " total infrastructure meltdown" scenario.
    Every 20 years or so we get a windstorm or something that kicks out power for a couple weeks.

  19. 30 year old well system- complete replacement- pump, tank, etc.-nuts?

    Hello all, what a great forum, this my first post- thank in advance for advice.:D

    considering some well system repairs.

    The existing system-

    The well is 30 years old, 51 feet deep, 6"...
