    I have removed the well cap only to find a Paulus Water Tight seal installed.
    Looking for help to remove it, as I can not see into the casing to find out if I have a leak.

    It looks as though are lugs under the flange that prevent it from seating all the way down on the casing. Take a hooked pry bar and pry on the flange of the seal to break it loose. I like to work the bar from side to side rather than back n forth.
