Flomatic’s new Drain-Back Plug Model 48 (reusable) for submersible pump water-well installations is designed to drain the riser pipe, and it is activated when a weight is dropped into the well drop pipe.
The plunger is stroked by the weight and opens the valve, which returns to its closed position when the drop weight is removed. The Model 48 is NSF 372 certified, and it is designed in all stainless steel construction with Buna-N-resilient seating. The Model 48 can be easily replaced in the field, helps eliminate water splashing at the surface, and prevents potential cross-contamination of the water well. The spring-loaded valve threads into a 1” pipe tee. By utilizing Flomatic’s Drain-Back valve, the pulling of pipe and pump becomes much easier and safer, reducing the pulling weight between 20-50%, the company states.
