    I'm no expert, but this is the exact same thing that happened to me when we had to replace our old convertible jet pump. It couldn't reach the cut-out pressure of the pressure switch. Once the pump...

    This thread was a very entertaining and educational read.

    I did a drain/flush/refill on my 80-gallon Bradford White electric today. It's only 4 years-old. It blew the lower element last year, so...

    Just an update. I picked up a 1" brass barbed fitting and will replace the plastic elbow with new piping to the tee, eliminating both the check-valve and ball-valve that are currently present. I'll...

    Sorry for the confusion. My whole reason for not having installed a CSV yet was my fear of that questionable connection blowing apart. Upon learning that check valve doesn't even belong there, I'm...

    You misunderstand my whole point here.

    I see nothing wrong with the PE coming out of the wall as far as it does. My ONLY issue is with the elbow joint to the small piece of PE to the brass...

    Thanks for the reply. I gues I will see if I can get an extended barbed fitting to connect to that piece of PE to make the transition to copper.

    I had someone tell me I could use one of those...

    Thanks for the reply. I am certain that the short piece of PE is just clamped onto the threads of that check valve.

    I agree, to a point.

    The thing is, after I pulled it - I found out that the old tank was much older than I was told by the previous owner of the house. We bought the house in May '05 and were...

    Thanks for the reply. I checked out your site. I guess I'll have to call to find out what shipping would cost. Price is comparable to what I've found.
