Введение

Follow this guide to remove the sections of riser main from a Bush pump. You can either remove the entire riser main for replacement, or just remove and replace or repair a broken section.

This guide uses the help of a tripod to lift the riser main. It can, alternatively, be lifted using lifting spanners, but a tripod allows the process to be done by two people. Still use caution when using a tripod.
