    Check valve before or after

    Yea that’s where line is now, on the suction line, a larger 1 1/4” brass check valve about 6” from the pumps inlet. Seems to work fine, I guess I’ll leave it alone then thanks.

    Check valve before or after

    Is the check valve best before or after my jet pump and CSV? or in between? Mine is currently (and has been for some time) in the input side, before my jet pump. Between my jet pump and storage tank. just noticed some other diagrams reading around looking for info and thinking maybe I have it...

    Water softener needed? Sediment filter and micron size recommendations.

    I would likely start with a backwash filter, specific media to your water issues. Have you done a test? Then add a softener if needed (or anyways, later when you can) This is my toilet on Well water, what its should look like haha. It hasn't been drained in over 3 years. Well > 1100gal tank >...

    JS10 good for 24 hours

    So on that note… when do you guys take extra percussion from freezing? My external pipes are all foam insulated, and 100% covered/wrapped in that thick electrical tape waterproof type wrap over that. So far, it’s been 26* at night, I did nothing and it was fine. but last night in the teens Is...

    JS10 good for 24 hours

    Yea, It was just the first time I actually wanted to run it all night, I was being paranoid. It worked like a champ, ran it all night until about 9:30am when it started warming up. Couldn’t even feel a pressure drop in the house either. CSV FTW ;) I’m not sure if running all night was actually...

    JS10 good for 24 hours

    Meh… I went for it. Pump is running, water hose right back into the storage tank. About 3/8 open to a spray head. So lots of water. Also it’s also disturbing the surface of the water in tank a lot so that’s good too. It’s 19* outside right now and looks like it will be like that until morning.

    JS10 good for 24 hours

    I think I know the answer to this, but the Goulds JS10 + CSV is good to just leave on and running over night right? Mainly to keep a good flow to prevent freezing. running form a water hose back into the storage tank. I have been testing it today just to see how hot the pump gets, its 26*...

    Question about replacing Resin

    Working from bottom up, I do change my 4.5x10" filters regularly, even before I see pressure drop on them. I am considering replace those will a whole house back washing filter before the softener though. Less maintenance. Iron bacteria is not bad, was stays clear, showers are good no. However...

    Question about replacing Resin

    Yea I shouldn't have any issues getting it dumped. I do plan on getting a test done actually. I did however get the Rona this past week, so I'm down for the count sick (currently feeling a little better). So I will get to this sometime next week.

    Question about replacing Resin

    ok, good stuff everyone. Gave me lots to go on. I'm going to revie my hardness settings (vs a hardness test) as well as how much salt I have in there and go form there. Glad to know backwashing should be keeping it clean in there. Also thanks for finding my model and Manual, that's going to help...

    Question about replacing Resin

    yea, that was my thought process. There was a lot of crap in my lines and stuff when we moved in. I cant even imagine how nasty the bottom of the softener is. I would feel better knowing it was all cleaned and like new. Then I can maintain from there. I did clean out the salt brine tank a while...

    Question about replacing Resin

    I don't have a large pressure tank, only a small one on my CST. Its pretty new. I'm not getting any orange iron stains or anything, just harder water than I used to get. I also liked the idea of new resin so I know its condition as a starting point. Forgive me if I want to skip the tests and...

    Question about replacing Resin

    So age isn't really a factor? I figured with an unknown age of the resin I might as well just start by cleaning the softer tan out and putting in new resin and going from there. Before paying for a well report and tests and stuff. Just seemed easier. It was working fine a while back but sems...

    Question about replacing Resin

    two more pics of the entire setup. The little stickers on it are just numbers (serial numbers I guess) that don't seem to duckduckgo out to anything.

    Question about replacing Resin

    I have a what I think its a nicer water softener. I don't know the age but everything works correctly. However it doesn't seem to be softening as well as it used to at all, its soft right after it regens, but it only lasts like 100gallons. I was talking to some folks and since I don't know the...

    Interesting CSV and Pressure tank question

    My Aunt and uncle love their new CSV btw. She is blow away to have that consistent pressure once again.

    Interesting CSV and Pressure tank question

    yes exactly! My thinking is I could run the generator for a while in the evening for showers, washer, high usage stuff letting the CVS do its thing. Then make sure the big PT is full and kill the generator. That will let us use the toilets, brush teeth and small stuff throughout the night. then...

    Interesting CSV and Pressure tank question

    Water always comes from my storage tanks. The underground well pump keeps them full. I could (via breakers) actually alternate my generator power to the underground pump should I need to top of the tanks as well, but now were talking the power out for a long time to deplete my tanks. Yea I...

    Interesting CSV and Pressure tank question

    hey y'all, I have been doing some home prepping for power outage scenarios. I have a 7500k propane generator that will run my Jet pump without issues and feed from my water storage tanks in an outage. My issues with with the CSV and small pressure tank I would need the generator running...
