    Such a deep setting would be one (lame) way to cope with a deeper water table.

    And there it is. Centrifugal pump will only pull up to a certain depth to water - you can't raise the water table, but you can lower the pump.

    That was installed by a friend of the customer's son. She said another local company bid her 600.00 to set it up correctly. As long as its working she is going to leave is alone.

    Phhhht - boring manifold layout, not to mention impossible to unthread a single valve :)

    That's what I would say.. As long as they work leave it alone- but here's our estimate to replace them if you start having issues

    I mean it's a clean job... But no way to unscrew valves or if a leak occurs anywhere then the whole thing needs to be ripped out

    Look a little closer Gents, Those aren’t jar-top valves. They have eight teeny tiny screws holding the tops on. Do-able getting them out to re-build them.
