What are the poly pipe markings? I know there is some 250 psi poly for deep well use.

i have never seen a pump that was not tethered with either a rope or a cable.

hey brandon, i've used a TDR to determine the depth of the pump and the status of the wiring to the motor and the depth at which the wiring is compromised.....just some useful information and i haven't mentioned TDR'S in awhile

you still need a multimeter to test the windings

so was the drop pipe 250 psi poly? 500 feet is a hell of a deep set for even that class of poly.
