1.3.2.1 Vented Cable Connections

Note:

For diagnostic purposes, you may wish to install the end of the Vented Cable with the serial number, to the Wellhead connection at surface.

The Vented Cable ends terminate with female twist connections for the AquaVent logger and the Wellhead. Therefore, the Vented Cables are interchangeable (i.e. it does not matter which end is installed on the Wellhead or AquaVent logger).

The steps below show how to connect a Vented Cable to a Wellhead and AquaVent logger.

Note:

See Section 8.2 for installing the well cap base and the Support Hanger Bracket for securing the cable when deployed.
