Polyethylene Well Pipe - Aqua Science

Aqua Science is one of the Nation's largest source for Water Well Pumps, Pressure tanks, Pressure Booster Systems, Drinking Water Systems, Cartridge Filters, Fleck Water Softeners, pH neutralizers, Radon mitigation systems.

 

Aqua Science offers continuous lengths of Polyethylene Well Pipe from 100 to 600 feet in two different pressure ratings, 160 PSI and 200 PSI. The pipe we offer is perfect for submersible wells, irrigation systems or any other water system you are building or replacing. Both types of poly pipe are NSF certified and ready to ship!

Why Choosing Well Pipe

When installing a submersible pump it is important to select pipe that has a pressure rating that matches or exceeds the working pressure that will exist in the well.

Two factors are used to determine Working Pressure:

1.     Number of feet from the pressure tank to the pumping water level
(One Foot of Water Depth = .433 PSI)

2.     The setting of the tank pressure switch(in PSIG)

The following formula will provide the Working Pressure:

(Depth X .433) + (switch setting) = Working Pressure

 

For example, if the pumping level is 330 ft. and the Pressure Switch is set at 50 PSIG the formula will be:

(330 X .433) + 50 = 192.9 PSI

A pipe with a rating of 200 PSI or greater is needed. Use of pipe with a lower pressure rating may result in pipe failure.
