    Default Well Pump Stuck on PVC Pipe

    I removed the pump from the well and it is screwed into the pvc pipe. It seems to be stuck and I am afraid that I will damage it.

    What is the best or proper way to remove the old pump from the pvc pipe. It seems to have a plastic nut.

    Thanks for your help and I would not even be this far without the help of this forum.

    Looks like schedule 80 drop pipe, then a plastic bushing which is screwed into the pump.

    Don't worry about damaging the pipe, simply unscrew it out of the bushing, you don't want to use that bushing again anyway..
