  1. The original question was more a matter of...

    The original question was more a matter of curiosity since I didn't know that filters couldn't or shouldn't be placed on the inlet side of
    the tank. It would seem to make so much sense for my big...
  2. I see one other thread that the sulfur eliminator...

    I see one other thread that the sulfur eliminator was discussed in on terrylove.com and nothing beyond that.
    I think if I knew that the money back guarantee was bullet proof and not infested with...

    Looks like the deluxe model is supposed to handle iron
    http://www.wellwaterstinks.com/Sulfur-Eliminator-Deluxe.html - $600
    Even though it looks like about $30 worth of hose and parts, I wouldn't...
  4. It seems similar to this -...

    It seems similar to this - http://www.qualitywatertreatment.com/PDF/Terminator-Lit_rev3.pdf but
    the video is hard to see and it implies I should have a spigot right at the well head. I don't, so I...

    I was reading up on the Birm filters which are the air injector type on the inlet side of the tank (injector only) that you're talking about. The filter is still on the outlet side as you've stated. ...
  6. Seems like there should be some other kind of...

    Seems like there should be some other kind of pressure switch that would act as a stop valve that could be in place to keep all those bad things from happening.
    Maybe some kind of filter that has a...
  7. As I noted earlier, when I took the old AVC out,...

    As I noted earlier, when I took the old AVC out, I was amazed how much orange gunk
    had caked onto it. The float mechanism was frozen in place and had not moved probably in years.
    This got me...
  8. Yes, it is a disposable sediment filter. I have a...

    Yes, it is a disposable sediment filter. I have a box of replacement filters that were here when I bought the house.
    The instructions what came with the AVC clearly state that the screw on the...

    This url is has another good description of the functionality of my hydro pneumatic tank system.
    http://www.cyclestopvalves.com/csvbasicinfo_19.html
    It further confuses though. Taking the 25lb per...
  10. Thanks and sorry it took so long for me to see...

    Thanks and sorry it took so long for me to see that. :D
    I guess if I wanted to know immediately whether the AVC is working or not,
    I'd have to find another way to introduce air into the tank. ...
  11. Funny, I just got it. I was trying to reply with...

    Funny, I just got it. I was trying to reply with this statement about the same time.
    Please let me know if I finally got it. Ok, I feel much better. Thanks LLigetfa.

    "I was wondering how this AVC...

    New AVC and gauge are installed. Water runs fine.
    However, I still have not heard the hiss nor seen bubbles when I put liquid detergent and water
    on the air outlet. The instructional that comes...

    It is one peculiar world these days Valveman. I don't think the young are going to get it until well after the economic collapse.
    Then many of them will likely be the ones who would kill you for a...
  14. Sorry that I missed this comment earlier. I...

    Sorry that I missed this comment earlier. I totally agree with you and it is worrisome. I like to tinker by nature, but mostly
    the reason I get involved at all with stuff like this is just to save...
  15. I just spent some time looking for it but saw...

    I just spent some time looking for it but saw nothing. I'll take the pipe insulation off and look after work or tomorrow. It should at least look like a stem of some
    kind, correct? Or maybe it is as...
  16. For what it's worth, he is one of the few that...

    For what it's worth, he is one of the few that has his own store for well parts. To me that doesn't sound
    like an inexperienced person.
    Do you believe that there are ONLY TWO WAYS air can get into...
  17. Ok, I'm on board with the snifter now. ...

    Ok, I'm on board with the snifter now. http://inspectapedia.com/water/Snifter_Valve.php (really helpful article)
    So, I thought I'd go to the tank and see if I could find it somewhere near the...
  18. Is this the checkvalve ?

    Thanks Valveman, is this the check valve in the picture ?

    Sure, from strictly a technical perspective.
    But, I'm not just trying to fix my system. I also want to understand the architecture of it
    and whether my Well guy was trying to rip me off.
    $50 vs...
  20. Hi Cacher_chick, I guess you see my...

    Hi Cacher_chick,
    I guess you see my dilemma. I have ordered the AVC and new gauge. Regarding the bleeder or bleeders in the drop pipe.
    Can you expound upon why you think there is no snifter...
  21. LLigetfa, I didn't mean to offend, but I asked...

    LLigetfa, I didn't mean to offend, but I asked twice about the Schrader valve. Just saying I probably have one and not explaining that it could also be a snifter doesn't help me. I do respect...
  22. It is my understanding that a Schrader valve is...

    It is my understanding that a Schrader valve is one that looks like a bicycle pump valve. I have not seen anything on or near my tank that looks like that. I suppose it could be beneath some of the...
  23. See Craigpump's comments: "You may have a...

    See Craigpump's comments:
    "You may have a bleeder plug in the drop pipe someplace which is sucking air through an uncapped snifter valve. If the AVC isn't working properly, your tank will eventually...
  24. I don't think I have a check valve there either....

    I don't think I have a check valve there either.
    I think the only check valve I have is at the pump itself. This is an old galvanized pneumatic tank.
    See some of the earlier photos.
  25. My tank doesn't have a bladder, so I don't think...

    My tank doesn't have a bladder, so I don't think I have a Schrader valve. I see your point though. Air for my tank would get added in via bleeder/snifter arrangement I think.
