Re: Pipe fell down well-- Help me get it out?


Yeah that is what i want to know ... if you got it working. I saw that you abanded the pipe, but did not know if you ran into any other issues by leaving the pipe down there.


Thanks for the reply... i kinda have the same issue, so i am going to give it a shot this weekend..

Re: Pipe fell down well-- Help me get it out?


So,

I have an updtate to my issue, since last i psoted . I had similar issue, 2 inch pvc casing, 1 inch drop pipe with a packer at the bottom of this well. I did Know thta the well was only 50ft deep total, and i also knew that there was a coupler at the end, but was in water. Went to lowes and tried a coulpe of things to see what would fit. I was actually able to retrieve the pipe and packer from the well by using a 1 inch threaded galvanized pipe atached to 60ft of pvc pipe. I pushed the pipe down and felt it go into the coupler and turned the the pipe ,so it would kinda thread to the coupling. Well it worked

I know this was not my thread, but i got some great ideas from it, and like to post successful ends to prooblems.

Again thanks for all your help. Oh and the pump is now working excellent as well..

A water well driller will have an overshot retriever..... has slips on it...

Maybe one will rent it to you.
