    Default pressure switch

    I am off the grid and power my cabin with a generator. I would like to be able to fill my pressure tank at night before i shut my generator down for the night without having to drain the tank down, to get the pressure switch to trip. Is there a pressure switch that has a manual on feature?

    Thank you

    You can simply push down on the tongue at the bottom of the spring, or you can use a generator that is designed to work with a pressure switch like this one.

    The EPS15-99 I got from valveman can be forced to start by cycling the power.
