I am a Water Well Driller and Water Pump technician. I own a business in Riverview, Fl. We repair motors and pumps in shop and in the field. We repair and replace submersible and jet pumps, galvanized and bladder tanks, and their controls. Water filtration is another one of our specialties.
I started drilling and repairing wells and pumps with my dad in 1958 at the age of 13 years. I worked with him on weekends and in the summer when not in school. After graduating high school, I worked for my Dad until going into the Army in 1968. I spent three years in the Army then went back into the Well Drilling/Repair field.

Yes, I'm quite sure it was code in 84. The black pipe your referring to is Poly pipe and is very good for underground use. Nothing wrong with PVC conduit either, it should be grey in color though. And
HI Mary, I have lived in Florida for over 30 years and we don't bury much here. When I lived in Michigan, we all buried the wire in poly pipe which was the same color and type as the water pipe. It
