Sure, if a psr is used but why if on a pressure switch?

As i said in an earlier (before the rep told me how stupid i was).

This is a site suited for a CSV, you already have an operating system. Use the CSV and call it done.

Or you could redesign the whole thing.

Please explain why you think a CSV is needed.

I could maybe see your point on a low yield well. But on an 18 gpm 1 hp sub it would be easy. 18 gpm on a 1 hp is probably only 20-30' to water. He could pull the pump by hand and set one of the plastic model CSV's down the hole and never touch the interior plumbing.

Around here the wells are deep and pumps are usually 200' There is no pulling by hand.

I did not say needed, i said suited for.

I feel that when a well is shared between irrigation and domestic usage both recipients benefit.

Pressure is basically constant and the pump runs til done.

So forget pressure switches/tanks and only use CSV's?
