Hmm. Bouncing the pipes up and down and turning them allows them to move some. Of course, it also provides action for the foot valve and makes a huge mess, plus adds weight to the piping as it refills with water. I have been able to raise it about 4 feet. It is like it gets hung up on build up on the casing. But when it moves, it feels like it has an inch of play for I can twist it and bounce it around. Of course, this is just a guess, because it is obviously still submerged in water, so it may only have an 1/8 inch or something.
Bottom line: should I continue the battle trying to get the line out to check/clean? I bet the lines are not more than 30 feet. I am not real keen on the idea of attaching it to the ATV and pulling, for I worry the poly-line will break and I will be SOL.
New question: I have no check valves above the well. Obviously I have a foot valve. Should I bother adding them? If so, what is the benefit
