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

    ive always wondered what happens if the pump or pipe breaks loose and falls down to the bottom.... are there tools to retreive such things

    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 :laugh:

    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.
