    Pulling a Deep Well Pump with my Boom I built.

    Put the Boom on the tractor yesterday might pull a 405 ft deep well pump with it today? Welded a set up to hold the pipe with the winch cable and to hold it at the top of the casing while re/hooking the cable to the pipe. Calculated the weight at 160 lbs per 100 ft or around 450-500 lbs with water distribution removed from the weight at the beginning of the lift. Once I get some up it will get lighter and will be using my winch to lift with and the remote so I can watch the well closer. I have my 1000 lb scale to see how close I am to figuring the weight and to make sure I am not over loading the boom busting it loose from the casing. First I will do test lift for weight and then pull 20 ft up at a time and cut off the old pipe as it comes out. Going to install Heavy Wall Poly Pipe easier to install back in the casing and get out later! Put my pump in with poly pipe 24 years ago and still working great and I can pull it up by hand since my water table is high and helps with 30% 0f the weight to lift. I will take pictures of the process when I do it. This job will pay for all the materials I used to build it with!!

    Does your weight estimate include the weight of the water in the pipe?

    Just looked it up out of curiosity. With a 1” pipe the weight of water is 0.34# per foot. So your 405’ run water weight will be 138#.

    400+ foot wells are common in my area. I got very lucky with mine and hit 19gal/min @180feet. I believe the well was over drilled down to 200' for sedimentation.

    I've been wondering how I would go about trying to replace my well pump when I need to. Pictures of your setup would be handy to see. Where did you get the tool for the pitless adaptor.

    Our well is that deep,, when our pump went out due to lightning,, I called a local pump guy,,
    he brought his 25 year old son,, his son pulled that pump, hand over hand,,

    I asked the father if we should help, the father said "NOPE" the boy liked the exercise,,,

    So, 200 feet must not be too over-powering?

    A total of 3 people pulled a 420 foot well. I pulled the t handle across the yard, the other 2 did the lifting at the case. He was about 50’ from a pond. My grandmother was on a river but also had to go to 400’.

    That was my first question. There is water in that pipe in addition to the weight of the pipe, pump hanging off the end of it and the wiring.

    We had our well replaced a year and a half ago. It was interesting to see the well guy splice in the power line to the pump leads. He used 1/4" copper tubing like what you see for a fridge supply line for butt splices. He pushed one wire in from each side of about a 1" chunk crimping the entire length. He said it provides more crimp surface to prevent it from slipping. He didn't really insulate it. Just some electrical tape.

    I did look that up and figured it in but when the pipe is under water it does not add to the weight and the steel weighs around 33% less. You just hope the water table is high so it helps. Added in the 40-50 lb pump too.

    When the poly pipe goes back in it is full of air and floats till the water fills it. This makes it real easy to install you just let it slowly slid in the well and hang onto the rope and wire! You have to have the Torque Arresters spaced on the pipe to protect it and the wire keeping it away from the sides to scar up. Be nice if you could fill the old one with air before lifting it out but the foot valve will stop you from pushing the water out unless it is leaking???

    On a Pit Less Adapter they normally have a female threaded 1" hole you screw a 1" rigid pipe into for lifting the adapter out of the socket slide it is in. Look one up on the net lots of information on pulling one. This one the pipe is out the middle of the well cap where I can hook on to it easy for the first lift.
