    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    I wanted to report back and say I did install the Rusco 1" Spin Down 100 mesh before the CSV. The system was working very well, and sand build up had slowly declined... until today. Unfortunately while we were out of town, our neighbor (new construction) hooked up to the water. First day back...

    Pressure Relief Valve Plumbing in 2015 UPC

    Hi everyone - I was wondering what the 2015 UPC mandates for plumbing from a tank water heater’s pressure relief valve? I believe this is addressed in the 2015 UPC Chapter 6 Section 608.5 Discharge Piping As I understand, a pan is no longer approved: “Discharge from a relief valve into a...

    Got it! Thanks Wayne!

    Rough In Critique

    Yes, the pre-slope mud bed is under there, I haven't seen corner patches mentioned as a requirement elsewhere. Is this a nice to have or a must have? I folded the corners like a present so there are no cuts. Would the corner dams go in all corners or just the curb? Do you mean horizontal...

    Thanks Old Timer! The slab is rough there around the penetration, but it will be stained concrete floors. Good news is we passed the inspection! He said we could have run water lines in the wall and insulated, also maybe needed an offset toilet flange, and 2" VTR here because of the cold...

    Called the inspection, but in the meantime was wondering if anyone sees any red flags. PEX is holding at 80 PSI, after finding some leaking threaded fittings with soap and water.

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    Haha amazing! I think I've got my system figured out for the time being then! I will post some photos on your website once it's all dialed! For others interested, I'm looking at the Rusco Sediment Trapper in 100 mesh...

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    I must admit I am impressed. It pressurized to 143 PSI! Took a couple seconds as you said. Maybe you could refine your estimate a bit for next time ;) Will it reach pretty close to that pressure with the CSV running at 1 gpm? I'm trying to determine if a 150 PSI sediment trap will survive pre-tank.

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    Awesome! Thank you so much for the prompt response! I think multiple hose bibs and monitoring the pressure switch would do the trick! I will start the pump with the valve closed. I know a minimum run time of 1 minute is recommended for the motor, but for just this once I think it will survive...

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    I checked another install in the area and found liquidtight with individual THHN conductors, so I went with the same. I have a question about the pressure tank with/without the CSV. If I am running a hose bib wide open, will the pump constantly cycle filling and emptying the tank? I would...

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    A sump pump is a good idea. I could tee the pressure release valve into the same pipe that runs outside. Some type of float switch or alarm, while a bit more complicated, might also be a good idea too. The biggest float switches I see are 25A, but that should be ample for the 2HP Pump even...

    Cleanout Confusion

    Thanks guys! Sounds like a good plan. The UPC requires 12" of clearance for 2" and less cleanouts. Would a washing machine closer than 12" count as an obstruction even though it can be moved?

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    Awesome - thanks Reach! Yeah, it's actually a well vault 130' from the house and has it's own separate meter since it will be a well share. So yes, the subpanel w/ 30amp breaker, pressure switch and pump controller are all underground in the vault within 3' of each other. Looking at the...

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    Fair enough! It does make sense that it's less strain than pushing 10gpm 400' up. I take it this is a wise thing to do now before it's all plumbed to know the maximum PSI the system can put out? Is 60 seconds how long it will take to build that pressure or will say 30 seconds work? On another...

    Cycle Stop Valves - CSV125 vs CSV1A For Residential

    That would totally stress me out haha. Part of my motivation to get the pressure tank plumbed is to avoid accidentally dead heading the pump. That said I could definitely throw a 200 psi gauge there and run the CSV near it’s minimum to get a real world number. Would be better than nothing...

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
