Posted in thread: Need advice on new pressure tank and maybe cycle valves on 09-19-2014 at 02:39 PM
When I go to the sink to prepare a meal or wash dishes, I turn the faucet on and off many
times. When I brush my teeth, I turn the faucets on and off several times. So with a much
bigger tank, I could...

The CSV is a good product and does save motors, but I'm still convinced that a larger tank used
with a CSV will further reduce cycles. I have always said that with tanks "Bigger is always

If it's a 1/2hp and you get power on only one wire, that could mean it's 115 volts. If it's a
1hp like you think that would indicate no power getting to the dead line and there is no 230

Goulds does make deep well jet pumps as well as shallow well. But I don't know about Grundfos.

using it for?That...

The problem with turning the pressure switch up on a jet pump is there is a fine line between
keeping the pump running as long as you are using water, and getting the pump to shut off when
you are not...

When the pump is making more pressure it is pulling less amps using less electricity. The
constant pressure valve does the same thing.When that well goes, you are looking at knocking in

You don't need a constant pressure valve with a shallow well jet pump. Just adjust the pressure
up a little so the pump doesn't cycle while your using water. I would still be looking to
