What is the bolt on top of the CTV for ...

Is this bolt for some kind of adjustment? Is it preset at the factory. Do I have to mess with it? Thanks, Mike

ok I just read that the CTV is set to 50. Can you give me an example of when it needs to be adjusted by me? For example my well is set 40on - 60off with a 30 gallon pressure tank... Thanks! Just trying to understand the CTV before I purchase.

With that size tank and a 40/60 switch the bolt on top of the CSV1A needs to be adjusted to 50 PSI while running 3 GPM like a single shower.  That bolt can adjust your constant pressure from 15 to 150 PSI as needed.
