    Can I connect a 220V Stenner pump to the load side of a 230V pressure switch or will the higher voltage burn out the Stenner pump? If so, why would they even sell 220V Stenner pumps, since the...

    I believe I do have clear water iron, so the clogged hydro-charger may be part of the reason I've been having such a rough time with the filtering. Granted, 20ppm of iron is beastly for any system to...

    I believe it is adjustable- there's a screw on the side that you can open and close a few turns. Would that be to allow more air in? At this point, I don't think I want anything to restrict flow...

    Thanks so much for the quick reply, my friend! I will have to remove it the next time I'm there and test the flow rate again. The first time I backwashed the filter that the owners used, all kinds of...

    Hydro-Charger reducing flow rate?

    I have a well in a vacation home in the mountains with considerably high iron (over 20ppm). The previous owners of the house had a Birm filter in place that they used to backwash periodically and a...
  6. Well Terminology (Flow Rate VS Water Pressure)

    I have a few questions about the terminology used, when it comes to well yield:

    Can anyone explain the correlation between flow rate and water pressure? From what I understand, flow rate is the...

    I'll definitely have to see if there's a way to snake the line from the pressure tank to the house. It's a fairly long run that goes under a hillside, the driveway, etc. If there is a clog and our...

    I thought that was a little high too, to be honest. The tag from the driller reads 200 GPM. He said water literally shot up out of the ground when they drilled his well and that they had to cap it...

    Thanks so much, guys. It sounds like I need to check my flow rate again, at the very least. I suppose an outside faucet would not have any type of flow restriction?

    I've also thought about asking...

    Hmmm. . . I actually hadn't thought of that. I tested the flow rate at the kitchen faucet. I was at the well head and called my wife in the house on my cell phone. She started drawing water in a...

    Is it possible to hook the compressor up before the two tanks and water softener and just blow the water through the plumbing lines?

  18. wiring 220V Stenner pump to pressure switch

    I suppose this is a hybrid well/electrical question. . . Has anyone ever wired a 220V Stenner pump directly to the pressure switch, so that it kicks on when the well pump starts? Stenner says not to...

    Will PVC bond to CPVC?

    I have a 3/4" PVC to 3/4" CPVC adapter. I know that I have to use CPVC cement (as PVC cement is not strong enough to work on CPVC).

    Having said that, will CPVC pipe actually bond to PVC? I assume...
