    What size suction line should you use for a 2" deep jet well? Single line well.

    I would use whatever size the pump and packer adapter is designed to use, probably 1-1/4".

    If you use 1.25" pipe you have to make sure your collars are "turned". Std. collars won't fit in a 2" well. If you use 1" then you have to adapt back to the 1.25" threads because the jets and well head is 1.25".

    Are we talking galv. or PVC for the jet line?

    Texas Wellman said it best! Personally I like 1" PVC with a 1-1/4" to 1" special PVC adapter.
    Unless you use turned 1-1/4" pipe couplings the couplings won't fit inside the 2' pipe of if they do they won't allow enough water passed the couplings to work well.
