    Default Re: pulling well pump, no pitiless adaptor?

    I see Finley Well & Pump still is in business in Bellville OH - If this is likely the driller a call to them on Monday AM about this might be time well spent.

    The "hex" nut may be a pulling point or an older pit type adapter, but I used pitless adapters in PA in the late 70's.. so they should have too.

    Interesting, a licensed driller installed the pump and no pitless. Don't understand that at all. I'm puzzled.
    A couple Kubota's and some payment books.....

    Had the same guy who put the well in back in 85 put in the mew pump. cost me more than I was indicated it would. 1400 with new pump and 54feet of line. old pump was put in back in 98 or so.

    the well did have a pitiless adapter but was a 0 clearance type that has the wedge thru the casing sidewall so a pump slides by. never knew they had such a thing to let you install a 4" pump in a 4"pipe.

    I may remember why I went to the other end of the shop, I'm just afraid once I get there I'll forget how to get back!

    Down here in the south they don't seem to install pitless adapters I guess it's since freezing isn't an issue.

    The whole idea behind a pitless adapter in the north is that the supply line must exit the well casing below the frost depth if we expect to have running water in February . Mine is down 5'-6' feet for example.

    The adapter allows pulling the pump for service without having to dig down beside the well casing.

    In the south, I suppose your supply lines exit the well casing at the top or at very shallow depths, so there isn't much need for the pitless adapter.
