E-Z Pull Cylinders are Deep Well water well cylinders and are designed to allow the water to drain out of the pump by releasing the pressure which facilitates for easier removal of the pump from the well.
To make the pulling of the lower check valve easy, we attached the lower spool to a stainless steel rod which is also attached to the plunger valve. When the plunger valve is withdrawn it opens the lower check valve releasing the water which is then withdrawn with the plunger valve. The up and down movement or jarring motion of the rods (not a steady pull) enable the removal of the lower valve.
The lower check valve can be cleaned by raising the spool off the seat slightly and letting the water inside the pipe flush back through the lower valve.
E-Z Pull Cylinders are available in 11 Gauge #449 and 10 Gauge #852.
