How do I measure my well casing to determine to determine what size of Well Seal I need?

Well seals are sized by the well casing inside diameter. What you need to measure is the inside diameter of the casing. Well seals are designed to make a compression seal against the inside wall of the casing. This measurement can be easily obtained using a ruler or measuring tape.

STEP #1 - Ensure the “ZERO” mark is on the edge of the casing inside wall. The use of a ruler is easier for this measurement due to the hook end on a tape measure which can make getting the zero mark right at the edge. TIP: You can put the 1” mark at the edge and subtract 1” from the measurement if the tab causes interference.

STEP #2 - Measure across the center point of the well casing to the opposite side. Move the ruler or tape side to side until you find the largest dimension (this ensures you are measuring at 180° to the start point. Make sure that the zero mark is still on the edge of the inside wall.

STEP #3 -Make sure that the zero mark is still on the edge of the inside wall. Then take note of the measurement to the nearest 1/16th inch, this measurement will correspond with the well seal size. As per the chart below.

CAUTION: Do not confuse a well seal for a well cap. Unlike well seals the well caps shown below are designed to seal on the outside of the well casing. See “How do I measure my well casing to determine what size  of well cap I need”
