Even looking at the adapters, not sure if I can make this work?

Re: Deep well pump in a dug well = Suggestions and advice?

Really?

To be honest, it never occurred to me to just hang the pump against the casing off a pitless adapter! That would be genius really!

Is there any argument this would be a bad idea?

Re: Starting over... again. 30x40 shop build project = "Sutton Shop"

Wow.. this is turning out to be the slowest build ever.

While it's going to be a great shop, I'm disappointed in how long it's taken me to get this far.

On the HD website, the cost is $17.95 and says it's a 16" by 10' piece.. 4 panel?
So is it $18 per 16"...

DT,
these were my original plan. But I'm really worried about the weight. Especially where the 2 different roofs will join.
