you can make a rig to pull submerable pumps that are hung on poly pipe from an old motor cycle wheel and fork . no tire on the rim . fork is fitted to a clamp that goes around the well casing to secure it . designed so front of wheel is over well casing . need tee handle of apropiate size and length to screw into pitless adapter . pipe goes over wheel to vehicle to pull if desired . other wise grab the end and pull . i made my tee handle from a 5 ft piece of iron pipe threaded on both ends, a iron pipe tee and two short pieces of pipe threaded on one end.just screw them together and you have your pulling handle .most smaller residential water systems i have seen use 1 in. poly pipe and the top of the pitless adapter is threaded 1 in. for the tee

before going to far make sure it,s not on pvc or galvinized pipe. last thing u want to do is lose it down the well.

its best to pull it up and tie a rope below the pitlees adapter for pulling . by then you will know what you have . i ass/u/me people would realize you shouldn't pull ridgid pipe over a curved surface .
