Are you asking how CSV's work or do not agree with their use?

I do not agree with their use with an existing system set up with a pressure switch/tank. Read the thread.

This will no longer be an existing system set up with a pressure switch/tank - it will be a modified system set up with a pressure switch/tank.....

If you don't agree, you don't agree. You don't have to get grumpy.

I install a number of csv's on wells, but not all of them. I feel they have their place.

I just want to know how this modified system set up will help. The drip zone might cycle the pump once in an hour with the pressure tank.

Mix in the domestic demand and it will prolly cycle more than once and will interfere with the domestic pressure. A csv will keep the pressure pretty much constant.

A drip zone is going to interfere with the domestic demand with a 1hp pump? This system is already running zones with rotors and sprays. Why would they run it during a shower?

It's not why, it's that they can.

It's not modified just an additional zone and it uses less water than any of the others.
