A Water Well Cap is sometimes referred to as a “turtle” because of its unique shape. This style of water well cover is the most common. It has a unique bump-out which covers the electrical conduit (usually plastic) with wires for the submersible pump. Turtles may be made from plastic, zinc, aluminum and cast iron. Some water well caps have side-bolts which clamp the turtle to the well casing, and others screw from the top, into a ring with threaded holes.
The EarthStraw 6" well cap is cast and machined from aluminum and provides is a quick, easy and rugged replacement cap with integrated mounting for the EarthStraw. This aluminum well cap is simple-to-install and fits right over any standard 6" casing, and is then held in place by tightening the bolts around the perimeter lip.
These well hand pump parts are machined at our factory in Arkansas, and come with a center access hole and a rugged black nylon gripper which holds the EarthStraw for pumping. If there should be an obstruction below the factory location of the mounting access point, the hole can easily be redrilled in a better location using drill kit (ESDK-001) which comes with a hole saw and a plug to cap off the original hole.
The cap worked perfectly (it replaced a cast iron split ring). It was so easy to drill for my house line.
