that is some nice work, I would consider making the brake disc larger diameter, to lower the clamping pressure required to give a smooth controlled drop.

The poly rope will stretch. Cable will stretch but not anywhere as much as rope. When the rope stretches it cause the pipe to take some of the weight. Lift your roll of tubing, add in the weight of the pump, fittings, wire, and about 8 1/2# per gallon of water. Factor in the torque of the motor every time the pump starts up. If the pipe breaks near the pump and the pump is hanging slightly sideways, how much of a problem will it be to get it out of a damaged or narrow well?

You are building a first class rig and I am really impressed with the quality of your work. Is it really worth it to you to use a marginal pipe? You have been advised by people that know way more than I do to get the 200 PSI pipe. They even suggested the 160 PSI pipe but they seemed uncomfortable with that recommendation.

I'm on the fence with the tube still. I have to go poly due to ID, the pex is just to restrictive. To be 100% honest, I jumped the gun on the tube and spent all my project fund so far. It was supposed to come in under $600 and I'm a little over now. I may have to wait a week to to recoup a little and go for the higher rated poly tube.

This is exactly why I am posting the project, to get feedback. Plus, it may help someone else spring an idea. It makes the gears turn. If it wasn't for money LOL!!

I found some 10/3 yellow cord!!

Project update:

Got the reel welded up, it's fairly true and turns good. The hub is a 2" x .120" tube. I have a pair of 2x1.5 bronze bushings that I will turn down to fit in the tube and leave a little flange so it does not wander into the tube. It will turn on a piece of 1.5"x.25" DOM tube, this will be the axle. I decide to build the "dolly" instead of adding it to a ready made dolly. This will turn into a tripod kinda unit that will tilt over the well bore and feed truer down the hole. I will use a bar to twist the rope onto at the very end of the run down the well to keep the rope tight and the tube and cord slack. That should eliminate all the weight issues on the tube and cord, even the tripod unit itself will be slack once the rope is taught on top of the bore opening.

OK, I've got some more done! Been super busy the last few months. Found a few days straight that I was able to concentrate on the project.

I utilized my new tube bender in the project. Decided to use 1.25x.090" round tube to house the reel. I also felt uneasy about a single sided hub mount and changed it up to a double side/shear supported axle.

Also used a gokart disc brake caliper to control the reel speed. I hope to get it completely assembled next week and test it.

Just a tacked together trial fit, see brake handle in front, slight pressure brings the reel to a halt!!:
