  1. Yep... my Lakos Separator...

    Yep... my Lakos Separator is working as advertized, definitely taking out the sand, grit and larger pieces of sediment. I just flushed it last Sunday. I wish I had known I was going to be updating...

    Hi Valveman... I 'd like to say I was simply doing a followup for my thread... but in truth, a coworker came to me this morning to tell me the output from his well dropped off dramatically this...

    Yikes...sorry Texas Wellman. I'm guilty of not coming back to this forum once I got my system up and running. :o I'm sure you've installed something by now but in the event others stumble across this...
  4. Thanks for the feedback valveman... I went ahead...

    Thanks for the feedback valveman... I went ahead and installed the Sandmaster before the CSV / pside-kick. As discussed earlier... many troubleshooting threads die off once the person resolves their...

    To be honest... the last person to probably be familiar with the CSV would probably be a HD employee. Also, unless your plumber is the well and pump expert in your area theres a good chance he may...

    errr... I'm not sure how to do this. Can you explain the steps I would need to perform to determine at what pressure my water stops moving?



    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand this either. I was...
  7. Sand may not be the correct description... unless...

    Sand may not be the correct description... unless someone wanted to call it "black" sand. I've never had the material tested. It has the texture of sand but looks more like ground up granite. No......

    Guess I'll opt for a higher rated relief valve.



    In checking the Lakos website their "Plus" Series is made of stainless steel while their economy model (non-Plus) is made of carbon steel....

    Good point on verifying the pressure rating of the sediment filter. However, in conjunction "with" the sediment filter, I as planning on installing a 75psi safety valve just "before" the sediment and...
  10. Sorry... just to make sure i understand. As you...

    Sorry... just to make sure i understand. As you know the pside-kick already has a pressure relief on the manifold just after the CSV. So are you saying I can insert a filter between the CSV and the...

    Either they misunderstood your complaint or they...

    Either they misunderstood your complaint or they were just trying to get you off the phone. Low salt in your softener system will not reduce your pressure.


    More than likely, the orange/brown...
  12. Spin-Down and/or Sediment Filter Installation Location? w pside-kick?

    My well (380') delivers crystal clear water with no odor. It has also passed several tests by a certified EPA lab for contaminants, bacteria etc. (most recently about 12 months ago). That said... I...

    Good point... grey PVC could also be electrical conduit but I'm pretty sure electrical conduit wouldn't carry the ASTM D-3309 marking since it specifically pertains to water supply systems and...

    I'm "assuming" you are referring to Grey pipe that carries the ASTM D3309 markings. (i.e. pb polybytylene pipe) then the answer would be yes, it is would be safe for both hot water and drinking...

    Hmmm… makes sense, but would involve a lot more research than I’m willing to put into it at this time. Had I known this conversation would take place back then when I replaced the pump I would have...

    errrr...No. Based on your input... I'm a little concerned. I ordered the pside-kick ... in fact I received it last Friday. Was planning on putting it in this week. Not sure if I screwed up or not.

  17. Okay... I'm convinced... Just ordered the...

    Okay... I'm convinced... Just ordered the pside-kick! With delivery times and scheduling my time, it will probably be a week before I get a chance to do the installation (unless the bladder...

    Valveman... thanks for the detailed response. In regards to second or third toilet flushes... I've only heard of that occurring in home with some of the earlier model low flush toilets that had...
  19. pside-kick system - Can I add a Second Pressure Tank?

    The bladder my 10 year old 125Gal Flotec let go (spraying water from the valve when I attempted to check the air pressure). When I purchased it 10 years ago, from one of those big name home...

    Purchased mine from Home Depot. Look for something that looks like a packing or shipping label. It will not be any part of the fluff / colorful advertising labels as those are printed in mass.
