    Default Pulling 100 ft. deep 2 inch packer well

    I have a 100 ft. deep 2 inch packer well with a 1 inch drop pipe. casing and drop pipe are
    galvinized. the well was dug in 1962, has not been used for about 40 yrs. I attempted to
    pull the drop pipe, will not budge or turn. pored 1 gallon of chlorex between drop pipe and 2 inch
    casing, still stuck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    Packers are not easy to pull. You will probably need a good hoist.

    valveman:

    thank you for your suggestion.
    I attached a cross member at the top of the drop pipe and put a hydrylic jack under
    each end. I'am afraid if I apply more pressure it may break?
    is there anything I can pore down the 2 inch casing to loosen the leathers?

    thanks

    After 50 years you need a good hoist truck and hope the pipe doesn't pull apart
