INSTALL A SUBMERSIBLE PUMP: 6 Lessons for doing it right
How exactly do I relieve the pressure? According to the manual I found online that little box seems to control it.
Do I just twist that and it will relive it or how do I do so? The manual is not very clear. Sie answering your question in the comment above: To get the pump to stop turn of the water and wait, with that small of a storage tank it will likely cut off pretty quickly.
Should I be good to go to hook it right up? I have a few questions Any precautions I need to take? Aker Solutions provides cost-effective, predictable and safe completion deliveries that prepare for the start-up of oil and gas production. Hook-up and completion covers all necessary activities preparing for the start-up of oil and gas production. It is the final phase in preparing new developments or modifications at existing fields to produce first oil. Services include all offshore work after lift-in of modules or platforms until handover to the customer.
This includes operations like temporary facilities, logistic handling, construction activities and completion of scope of work and commissioning assistance. We have a market-leading execution model and toolbox, technology, experience, management expertise and the best qualified people needed for a successful completion of any project, anywhere.
The torque arrestor braces the installation against the twisting force of the motor as it starts, preventing rotation, movement and swinging of the pump as it hangs off the pipe. And soldering these connections makes good sense. Properly crimped connectors work fine at first, but they are susceptible to corrosion over the years.
INSTALL A SUBMERSIBLE PUMP: 6 Lessons for Doing It the Right Way
Even with soldered connections, cover them with waterproof, heat-shrink tubing, just to be sure. Never use electrical tape because it will simply fall off in time. I find that you can push pump wires through 10 foot lengths of pipe without it buckling. And second, a check valve ensures immediate water flow into the tank when the pump starts up.
The best kind have a flap of brass inside. They make a little clicking noise when they operate, but they allow much greater water flow than the silent, spring-activated valves. Install a check valve immediately after the water pipe enters your house, but before it reaches the pressure tank. Getting pipe and pump and wires into the well in one piece is heavy work, and there are a couple of things you can do to make success more certain.
The first has to do with the top of the well casing. Just to be sure I use a plywood donut with a rounded inner edge that sits on top of the well. This eases pressure on the pipe, making it easier to avoid kinking it.
Hook-Up & Commissioning
You can see the plywood dough I made below. Put two people in charge of directing pipe at the well head, and a third guiding the top end of the pipe and tee handle along the ground. After meshing the two halves of the pitless adaptor, tie the end of the safety rope on the top of the inner well cap, complete your connections to the wires feeding power to the pump, then fasten the outer well cover over everything.
No one knows when their well pump will stop working, but there is a way to get temporary water for your whole household while you bring your submersible back online.
