    I am just kidding, my machine is not done yet. I just thought this was a great picture I would share with you guys.

    These guys did the job. I wonder how many gallons they used?

    PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE..... It lets you control how much pressure goes into your wand and how much goes back into your tank.

    Those cheap systems do not have one, so it is possible to get away without it but at the same time it is only 50 bucks or so.

    PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE is the way to go get the pressure you want at the hose and the rest goes back to the tank so your material is always mixed.

    pressure relief valve must be near the wand then. How is it used. The engine is consstantly pumping on the trash pump and what step is taken to send sealer to the wand. Im guessing the wand is on the post pump side line that goes back to the tank?

    This is how I plumbed mine:
    Tank connected to Ball Vale Shut Off connected to Y-Strainer connected to Pump connected to Manifold ( 2 tees and a nipple). So now there are there are there outlets off the pump. First outlet attach hose and wand, second outlet attach pressure gauge, thrid outlet attach pressure releif regulator and return line to tank.

    I found that this set up works for me it releifs the pump wich will help it last longer mine has lasted 4 year now with no leaks and good pressure
