    Default several foot valves stuck in well casing!

    I need to know what breaks down the leather seals on the foot valves and how to remove them myself. Can you push them through to the screen? How big is a screen? Do i even have a screen? Darn foot valves are keeping me from my water.....HELP!!!

    I don't seem to be getting what your problem is >>> several foot valves stuck in well casing!<<<, I don't know how you have several foot valve stuck in the well casing, dosen't make any sense.

    With a foot valve that goes bad you just replace it, you would have it in your hand and know it has a screen.

    You do know that the foot valve is at the bottom of the well, don't you? You have to pull your well line.

    Your question is a little vague. Leather usually lasts for years however any sulphur in the water will cause the leather to harden in a short time. Most chek valves and foot valves today don't have leather flappers. Please explain your situation a little more in detail.
