house works: tiny valve extends life of hard-working water pumps

Do you have millions of Canadians with a rural or rural water supply system and how long your pump lasts depends in part on the size of the pressure tank you have.
It\'s a simple, effective place but few
Known valves called Cycle stops can increase the life of the pump.
I have installed one and it is better than I thought.
One thing that all private water systems have in common is pressure tanks.
The pump lasts the longest when it is turned on and off as often as possible, which is related to the size of the pressure tank you have.
The larger the tank, the longer your pump stays, fill the tank and increase the system pressure.
Running for a long time is a good thing.
In contrast, smaller tanks trigger frequent on/off cycles, as they fill and empty more frequently when using water.
But even if you have a space for a big tank, all the wasted space is still a pain.
If a small space requires a small tank, then frequent switching can easily cut the life of the pump by half.
Cycle stop valve (; 800-652-0207)
Twenty-five years ago, an engineer named Cary Austin invented the valve, which his small company produces today in millions of homes and many municipal water supply systems.
To understand how the valves in Austin work, you need to understand how the normal tank works
The equipped water system works without the help of a cycle stop.
The core of each private water supply system is the water pump, which is controlled by the pressure switch.
When the water pressure in the system tank is lower than the preset level-
30 pounds per square inch (psi)—
The pressure switch energizes the pump and then delivers the water to the tank.
When the water accumulates in the tank, the internal pressure rises to the preset maximum-
Usually 60 psi-
Then the pump shut down.
Back and forth, back and forth like this.
In addition to pushing hard on the pump, all of these switches mean that the water pressure you encounter in the tap or shower is quite different from the normal system. Pump-
The two main problems with the elimination of the cycle stop are cutting off the switch and changing the water pressure.
The cycle stops to maintain a constant 50 psi water pressure output, as long as any fixture in your home is turned on and more than one gallon is pulled out per minute.
Your pump will no longer start and close, nor will it change the water pressure.
The pump will remain in operation as long as the water continues to operate, providing a perfectly stable 50 psi.
I installed the cycle stop in a water system and I put it in a building with no space to hold anything but the smallest tank.
The performance is very good, no electronics or fragile parts can be damaged, and the electricity consumption is also reduced as a reward.
The cycle stops working, regardless of whether one or more fixtures flow or not, it is necessary to increase the flow resistance more or less to maintain the output of 50 psi.
It\'s essentially an automatic throttle, and while you\'ll think it\'s not good to limit the flow of water like this, it\'s actually easier on most types of pumps.
Connecting the power consumption meter to the water pump that supplies the water to the cycle stop valve, you can see that there are fewer watts used compared to the pump that runs without the valve.
The impact of the submersible pump and the shooting pump
The two most common types of residential water systems.
Cycle stops don\'t work with piston pumps, so don\'t even try if you have this rare type.
Simple valves, longer pump life, more stable water pressure and 25-
A record of success.
It sounds like progress to me.
