Yea I was debating materials. I could have gotten 1" EMT for not too much more, but I'm not sure how much better it would perform with those thin walls, especially since going with the PVC lets me center on the drop pipe. Anything thicker than EMT would have been around triple the price so I'm hoping the PVC gets the job done. There are no joints, torque arrestors, or anything else on the way down. Just the wires taped occasionally.Would be better to use 1" steel pipe to push down with. But pvc is worth a try if you don't lose that down the well also.
