I put the packer in at 15 feet today and dropped the foot valve in 20 feet lower at 35 feet . This made it an additional 15 feet to the water level with 8 feet of water in the pipe (including the sandpoint). The leathers sealed almost immediately. I hooked up the pump to a generator and filled all the pipes and primed the pump but was unable to pull any water from the well. Are you sure the packer will pull under this split configutation??? I was unsure if the suction line would pull the initial fifteen feet to the packer and then if the packer was able to supply the drive to take it up the remainder of the pipe. Is this something that has been done with consistent results?
Thanks for the feedbacck.
