Well Ring Installation

Raised brick well - standard ring

Shown to the right is a standard brick construction well, raised above ground using cut bricks.


We suggest before installing the top brick course the well ring is delivered to site, bricks positioned without cement and with the steel ring above the bricks mark the required cutting.


It can prove very hard to cut the top course before ring arrival as wells are rarely if ever round!

 

The ring total height is 32.5mm. Cutting a 40mm deep notch allows for a 7.5mm cement bed under the ring. This helps level the ring on uneven brickwork.


The radius notch may vary depending on well roundness and diameter.
