Well, the casing is enclosed by the seal at the top so that the head of the well would be watertight sealed and completely closed. This will not only help the well from seeping, but also it will protect the water from contaminating with different germs.
Foot valve works as a pump prime; it is placed on the bottom of the suction pipe, which automatically closes the pump when it is inactive.
How to identify whether there is a need for installation of the pump?
