Driven Well


I have a 2" galv driven well pipe with a steel cap stuck on it! The 2" galv has threads, but I think they are stripped. The steel cap just keeps spinning on top of the pipe. I know that I could cut off the galvanized pipe, but I don't have any way of redoing the threads once I cut it off if needed. I was wondering if a sawzall with a metal cutting blade would cut the drive cap off or if there is an easier way.

Thanks,
Jen

Even if you did get the cap off now the threads are shot. It will have to have a tight seal or the pump will not be able to draw water out of the pipe.
The pipes going to have to be cut with a pipe cutter not a sawsall and be rethreaded.
Pretty sure a real plumber will have what's needed.
