    Default 2 inch deep jet well single pipe help

    Can I use 11/4" beveled pipe in a 2" casing. The od is 1 7/8" on the suction. Is the 1/8" clearance enough to feed water back to the ejector? Thanks

    Is this steel casing or pvc? It's not the pipe that causes clearance issues, it's the couplings. All 2" wells with packers are designed to be used with 1.25" pipe. You have to have special thin collars to go into the 2".

    It is a steel casing. I bought 1 1/4 inch belled 20ft sections. The widest part of the belled end measured 1 7/8, that only give 1/8 clearence for water to go back to the ejector. Will this work?

    How are you going to connect to the jet and well head?

    Well head part should be easy-thread the 1.25" pipe and just screw it on.

    I would not use PVC pipe in a steel 2" well with a packer jet.

    On a 2 inch or smaller casing you can connect the pump suction pipe directly to the well casing.

    You need the two pipe jet if the water level is deeper than 24'.
