      In an underground well, what is the purpose of a pitless adapter? Why do some localities not approve of them? What would you use in place of one?

      It provides a way for the house service pipe to penetrate the side of the well casing with a supposedly contaminationproof seal. The hole in the casing has to be made with a hole saw for the best results. If it is made with a cutting torch, then the hole may be offsize or the edges ragged preventing a proper seal, and once it is buried, (the pitless part of the label), the deficiency would not be detectable. The latter would be a good reason for Wisconsin not allowing them.: In an underground well, what is the purpose of a pitless adapter? Why do some localities not approve of them?

      : In an underground well, what is the purpose of a pitless adapter? Why do some localities not approve of them? What would you use in place of one?The pitless adapter allows you to go into the side of the well casing below the frost line in the ground. There are top-mount adapters, but they are restricted to heated or non-freeze locales. As to lack of approval…I havent run into that so I wouldnt know…sorry.

      Wisonsin doesnt allow the greatest fitting to be introduced to the submersible pump business? Maybe they should just put holesawing into the code…
