Brass check valves are used to prevent the water in your pump pipe
back down the well. Use one check valve within 21' of
the top of the pump, and one every 120' to 140' above the first check

Threaded Brass Pipe Nipples
Threaded Brass Pipe Nipples are available in varying
sizes and have male pipe thread on both ends to connect pipe fittings.
Stainless Steel Pipe Nipples
Brass foot valves are used to keep a line full of water for a
suction type pump installation.
Pitless adapters are used to discharge from a submersible pump
underground to avoid coming out the well top.
Steel Pitless Adapters
are now also available
and Well Caps
Well seals are used when your pump discharge pipe comes out of the
top of the well.
Well caps are used on pitless wells where the pump discharge pipe exits
the well underground.

Pressure tanks give you a steady pressure range that allows you to
use water without the need for the pump to turn on each time you call for water. You should buy a pressure tank
that will have a draw down of at least 1 minute of run time when the pump turns on, based on your
pumps gpm capacity.
Tank Fittings Kit
We offer long tank cross fitting packages that have everything
needed to plumb you water pressure tank up.
Stainless Steel Tank Fittings Kits
are also available
Electrode Pump Protection
BW Relay and Electrode systems use 3 electrodes in your well to
control your pump. 1 electrode is below the pump as a liquid ground. The
next electrode from the bottom with be the sensor that you are nearly
out of water in the well, and will turn off the power to your pump. The
third electrode is up higher in the well to a point where the well must
recover water level to, before the relay can reset and allow your pump
to return to service.
Low producing water well systems have a risk of running out of water
when pumped for long periods of time. Franklin's PumpTec is a control that senses amperage change caused by
starting to pump air. When you start to run out of water, the motor runs faster since it is
under a lighter load. The PumpTec senses this change in speed by an amperage change and turns
off the pump, preventing damage.
Cistern Water Level Control for keeping cistern full.
This BW control will signal your well pump to turn on and off to
keep a cistern full of water. The system uses 3 electrodes like the unit
above, but the upper electrode turns off the pump, and the second
electrode down is the one that signals the pump to turn on. The third
electrode on the bottom is your liquid ground.
Submersible Pump Wire
Submersible Pump Wire is used to connect the submersible pump motor in the
well, to the power wires coming to the well.
UF Burial Wire Cable
UF Burial wire is used to connect the electrical
power from the house to the water well. The protective shell keeps the
wire safe when buried in a trench with the water lines.
Heat Shrink Splice
The Heat Shrink Splice Kit is stakons for connecting
submersible pump wire to the submersible pump motor leads
and heat shrink tubes that seal over the stakons to
make a water proof electrical connection under water.
Dole valves are metered flow controls. Installed in your water line,
they look like a coupling, but the through flow is controlled by a
metered orifice that controls the maximum flow of water through the
pipe. Dole Valves are stocked in 3/8" up through 1"
Drain Back Fittings Kit
Standard pressure tanks require
different plumbing. This kit will
give you the fittings necessary to plumb a standard pressure
tank for use with a drain back system.
Filters & Elements
Water filters and water filter elements are used to remove sediment and
dirt from your water, or to remove taste and odor.
Pressure switches are sold in ranges that vary 20 psi between the on
psi and the off psi. This will help to give you an even pressure range from your water
Pressure reducing valves protect pump systems from producing too
much pressure and damaging pipe.
Water meters are used to assess how much water is being pumped over
a period of time.
Brass water valves are placed in the water line to control water
flow during times of maintenance.
Disconnect & Fuses
Electric motors should use a disconnect box with
fuses that makes power disconnect easy for pump servicing.
Brass insert fittings are used with poly pipe to convert to a pipe
thread for on the ends of the poly pipe.
Torque arrestors, safety rope, and cable guards are miscellaneous
well accessories that improve your well pump installation. The torque
arrestor prevents cable damage at the pump from torque movement. Safety
rope offers you a secure way to recover a pump that has a pipe failure
in the well. Without safety rope, you must pull up on the electrical
wire, which may cause the wire splice to come apart when pulling up on
the wire cable.
