Ok thanks. I thought I should leave the check valve there.

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.

I'm fixing to replace my well tank with a CS valve. Anything I need to add to the design besides what comes in the box? Check valves or anything? Thanks!

Use the CSV1A and it can handle the the debris, as you want the CSV before the filters and everything.

Frequently Asked Questions / where to place csv valve
« Last post by psmith32 on May 12, 2022, 04:37:35 PM »
Thinking about  my future well layout.
I have high rust content and hard water, therefore, should the csv valve be before the neutralizer tank and rust filter or before?
Possibly place a spin down filter before csv?

Thanks

Sure. As long as the pump can make the extra 10 PSI.  Do you know anything about the size of the pump?

A 15 GPM, 1.5HP builds 182 PSI.  The CSV125 is only rated for 150 PSI max.  The CSV can take the extra pressure, but it makes the minimum flow more like 2.5-3 GPM instead of 1-2 GPM.  Turn your pressure switch up to shut off at 75, as the less differential pressure the lower the minimum flow, and it might stay running with a 2 GPM shower. 



We make the 60 pound springs put out a couple PSI higher, because you do lose 1 PSI for every 2.31' it is installed below the surface.  Holding 55-56 PSI sounds about right for being 15' below surface. 



Even a short piece of 3/4 pipe can cause some loss as the flow increases.  Filters cause even more loss.  Where is your pressure gauge in relation to the tank and filters?

This morning, with shower running (~ 2 gpm)
Tank draws down to 50 psi, pump turns on.
+ 1.5 min - climbs to 67 psi fairly steadily and slows down as it continues to climb higher
+ 30 sec - hits 70 psi, pump shuts off.

This doesn't seem right
