What is a Pitless Unit?
A pitless unit replaces above-ground well housing and well pits, improving sanitation, convenience, frost protection, and vandalism security. Welded to the well casing underground, the pitless unit safely redirects water below the frost line. It can provide
well completions that occupy little room in highly populated areas and, with a submersible pump, it is virtually noiseless. At some installations fake rocks cover the top of the pitless, making for an attractive completion in parks and easements.
The patented Baski Pitless is a rugged spool-type unit designed for quick delivery, ease of installation, convenience
in setting and pulling pumps, and long trouble-free operation. The extra heavy duty construction is specifically designed for deep sets below 500 feet. The upper casing barrel is made from a minimum 3/8 inch thick steel, welded onto the heavy wall housing made of 1/2 ~ 1-1/2 inch thick steel. Stainless steel o-ring sealing surfaces in the housing ensure a long-life, leak-proof seal. Two 1 inch locking bolts provide for padlocked
security of the well cap.
