Frequently Asked Questions / Re: Pump Pressure
« on: June 27, 2022, 06:40:24 AM »
Inlet pressure will always be higher than output pressure.  So yes, you have a bad gauge.

Sorry for your problem, but I looked it up again.  1" sch 40 PVC with socket weld joints are good to 270 PSI.  You should have no problem with only 170 PSI.  Must have a batch of bad fittings.  Can you move the CSV closer to or install it at the well?  Only the pipe before the CSV sees the 170 PSI as after the CSV the pipe will only see the 40/60 from the pressure switch.

I do systems that require 150-170 PSI on the pressure switch side and have up to 256 PSI on the pump side.  Your 10/50 system with 170 PSI back pressure is normal and should not be giving you problems with fittings. 

PVC has a much lower pressure rating as the temperature increases.  Any chance you have heat tape or a heater on that pipe?

Good!  Sorry for the delay.  Been sick.

It depends on how much water you were using when you only had 34 PSI.  If running a 3 GPM shower the pressure is low, then yes you can adjust the CSV to 40.  But you only need to be using about 3 GPM when making the adjustment.

You have a leak.

Certainly!  We do a lot of jet pumps.  The CSV doesn't care what kind of pump it is as long as it has a centrifugal impeller.  I think I can post a picture but there are lots of pictures of jet pump in the reviews.  You can even filter for "jet pumps".  Thanks. Cary

The credit would be what ever you paid for the CSV125.  Just mention I offered to do this for you when ordering the CSV1A and the credit will be put against your order.

A 1/2 inch prv won't need any fittings to  screw into the 1/2 inch port.  Need 1/2 X 1/4 bushing and 1/4 nipples to install pressure switch.

Any leak will cause the tank to drain and the pump to cycle on and refill the tank.

You can get a digital pressure switch from us here.

But I don't recommend it.  If you want something that looks cool and only last a few years a digital switch is good.  If you don't want to have any problems for 20-30 years use a regular mechanical pressure switch with a CSV.

Certainly!  The CSV1A is even made so you can screw the tank directly to the CSV if you want.

What are you running for any length of time that doesn't use at least 1 gpm?

Sure, the CSV1A will not leak.  We will even give you credit for the CSV125 against the CSV1A.  The CSV125 is a wonderful valve and the one I use at my house.  But it does require good clean water or it will leak on the floor.  None of our other valves can leak on the floor, but they also do not have quite as good of flow characteristics as the CSV125.

The pump and a check valve are the only things not included with the PK1A.  There needs to be a check valve on the discharge of submersible pumps and the suction side of a jet pump.
