  • 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
    better". How...

    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
    volts to make...

    Goulds does make deep well jet pumps as well as shallow well. But I don't know about Grundfos.
    I've never seen a deep well jet by them.I've never tried the bobber method, but a heavy lead
    sinker on fi...

    I think someone's smoking some funny stuff. Booster pumps boost pressure, but can't boost
    volume much at all.

    It could be anybody's pump. End suction pumps all look alike. They are used for boosting
    pressure not pulling from a well or pond. They are extremely hard to get primed. What are you
    using it for?That...

    I am in the Pump Business and sell a couple of brands. I have been selling the Betta Flo from
    National Pump Co. (Used to be Georgia Pacific until bought out) They have always been a good
    pump and come...

    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
    another 1-1/4"...

    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
    replumb it to ...
