first, this pressure reducer leaked on me after the zone was turned off..

being low in the gravity side and the water draining back toward me was to blame..Anyone ever notice this with this product?

Not to be picky or anything, but, shouldn't the crimp clamps be on the "barbed" part of the fittings.

you must not of installed many of those then....

the end of those filters should point towards the main or location of the water..

different fitting company's have different locations of barbs..I'm positive I've hit all my barbs thank you very much.

1.lasco (i think thats the name)
2.Dura

Which can be a very big PITA when you use a brand of fittings on big pipe that don't have barbs right where they should be..Most of the time when that happens I hold up another fitting of equal size to compare...

furthermore I tripple clamp my mains and prefer the first clam to be off the barb/close to the barb as possible...Just the way I was taught.

Pic early shows filter in correct position, though it should be downstream of the valve,
the other pics show the filter backwards..... :dizzy::dizzy:

what do you mean by backwards? position wise or flow wise?

cause both of them are good flow wise...

The reducer in the first pic got changed cause when that drip zone was off the water would come back and drip out of the filter..causing me make some changes...

I was wondering this before we had this convo...Why does it matter if the filter is kept under main pressure? Just a thought..

It looks like it could be an Amiad. If so, it depends on whether its mesh or disc type.... one goes one way and the other goes the other direction...

Not sure what brand of filter was used. The "y" filters I have used always point toward the downflow side of the system, so the water is forced through the screen as it passes through the "y". The pic I am talking about shows the "y" pointed back toward the valve or against the flow.

Nice pics of the kayak trip. Lovely lady, nice work Rotar.

Obviously rotar is filtering the water out of the dirt.

Ummm... are those hammers aimed at your head or mine Mike? :confused:

Look at an Amiad filter and you'll see two directional arrows.... in opposite directions.... depending on which filter element is in use. And it's the only filter I know of designed for mainline pressure, i.e. one filter, multiple valves.

Amen. Not the only one, but the most cost effective. Nothing like knocking out multiple birds with one stone. Building a manifold right now with a single Amiad on the main.
