Mikes Steel Handle Pump
Darrell’s HWP-L Installed In A Pasture
Bob #1 Installation
This pump was installed in a cold climate where a pitless adapter had previously been installed inside the well casing. Rather than alter his metal well seal Bob chose to add a concrete box and extend his casing above the well head. This is about an 80' installation. The weep holes in the extension pipe will keep the pump from being damaged by freezing water. However care should be taken if using the pump at temperatures below freezing for extended periods.
Bob #2 Installation
This was a special case where the owner needed to get by an especially bulky pitless adapter in a 5" well. Normally they aren't an issue in a well this diameter. But here..? What he ended up doing was taking the pitless adapter with the existing pump line connected to it up above the top of the well head. He then lowered our pump down to below the level of where the pitless sits. Then, returning the pitless adapter to its original place in the well, he started connecting pipes. Notice that he is gluing pipes in this special case. This is because he only has 1 3/4" between his adapter and the side of the casing. We sell these special fittings if you contact us for this rare application.
When he completed his installation he had a very functional emergency hand pump in his well house.
Here are his words:
Hi Bruce....Thanks for all your help!...It Works!
some details:...Since it was inside a well house....I used 5' sections...
You were right...I didn't need to make the Smaller fittings slide through the larger ones...!
Water level was 27'.....went down to 40'...
Sending a couple more pictures.....let me know if they'll work for you!
I'll leave you some Positive feedback!
Dons Pump And Pressure Tank Build
Will you please send me the plans for the pressure tank? Thanks!
Put the well in today down about 85 feet (static water = 50 ft.)....works great! Done in less than 2 hours!
Great product I will recommend highly
Its on a 650ft well with 50ft static. It was abandoned because it did not produce enough for the garden, lawns and orchards...plenty for this type of use!
George and Sharon’s Well
This was a complicated installation of one of the first Stainless steel TEE handle units. Our company's involvement in this one was extensive from start to finish. We have since changed to a steel exterior section as well. It was necessary to resurrect the well before installing The Handy Well Pump. This was an old well with a steel casing that had rusted through. The well was dug out and a new casing installed inside the old one. I hope to give a complete photo gallery description on a new page called Dig Your Own Well in the near future, or as time permits.
THANKS FOR THE ASAP REPLY, ORDERED KIT THROUGH AMAZON. I SAW YOUR VIDEO AND WILL CHECK STATIC LEVEL AND ORDER EXTENSIONS AS NEEDED AND A 6INCH WELL SEAL DIRECT FROM YOU.THANK YOU KINDLY FOR ALL YOU DO.
A Stealth Pump Installation
This was an interesting install. The customer had purchased one of those cheap "EZ" e-bay pump kits and couldn't get it to pump water. He contacted us to see if we could help. We ended up building him a special high volume pump that would produce a lot of water in a short time and in a small area. Notice that the handle fits inside the well cap. This is because in the neighborhood that he lives, The CCR's don't allow for any second water systems. Also, he indicated that the property developers owned his water rights. So even though he owns the well, the water line has a meter on it. It looks like he found a way around that bit of greediness.
