9.1 Standard Option

Tools and accessories required: tubing cutter, Phillips screwdriver, PVC pipe saw/cutter.

Determine the desired 'stick-up' of PVC casing when the system is at its final depth. If applicable, cut the last piece of PVC Riser to the appropriate length and install the Riser Clamp to achieve your desired 'stick-up'. The Riser Clamp ensures that the proper stick-up is maintained when the Waterloo System is hung. For safety, use a casing clamp and lower the System to depth. If you have used the SS support cable to lower the System, be sure to continue to use this cable to support the System during the packer expansion (up to three days).


Allow for at least 20" (50cm) of clearance above the final PVC Casing 'stick-up' and the underside of your protective outer enclosure. This will ensure that you do not pinch the monitoring tubes and cables above the completed manifold.



Take a water level reading in the borehole and record it in the "Water Level at End" box on the Installation Log, after the System is installed to depth.

Remove the two Phillips screws from the white protective housing of the Wellhead Manifold Base and then remove the Manifold Base from the 4" (100 mm) diameter protective housing. Install this lower (black) portion of the Manifold (small end first) onto the completed installed PVC Casing. Using the numbered Wellhead as a guide, separate and organize the tubes and/ or cables into a 'wagon wheel' pattern around the Wellhead.

Thread the open tubes, sample tubes (white) and/or blue VWT cables through the numbered Wellhead. Re-attach and screw the numbered Wellhead to the Manifold Housing at the Wellhead.
