Mounting brackets are easy-to-install. They prepare the well for instantaneous pump deployment and easy removal to avoid theft or tampering. The bracket will also secure the pump for easier one or two-handed pumping. It is highly recommended that you take a few minutes to prepare your well in advance by pre-installing the mounting bracket. The Top Mount Bracket is for wells that have room on top to position and attach the bracket over an available (or drilled)hole. If you do not have room on top, consider the Side Mount Pump Bracket. The mountain kits come with the aluminum bracket, a nickel plated brass gripper nut, a thick gasket, a drill bit for the mounting holes, a tap for threading the holes and the appropriate fasteners. Allow at least an hour for installation of the bracket.
