HOW THE PRESSURE TANK / ACCUMULATOR TANK WORKS
a. Accumulator tank contains a factory charged air cushion. This is usually 10%.
b. When the pump starts, water enters the accumulator reservoir. At maximum pressure the system is filled. The pump then shuts off.
c. When water is demanded, pressure in the air chamber forces water into the system. The pump stays off until minimum pressure is reached, then the pump starts and runs until out-out pressure is reached.
Water Pumps Now are happy to pre-charge your accumulator tank to suit your 12V, 24V or 240V diaphragm pressure pump when purchasing. Just let us know what pump it is to be used in conjunction with.
EG: Escaping Outdoors FL35 @ 35PSI needs the accumulator tank to be charged to around 28 PSI.
