I've been thinking about installing a CSV (cycle stop valve) after my F&W 2 horsepower booster pump to maintain a constant PSI at the house and put a stop to the water hammer. Has anyone done this? How does the above ground booster pump behave to the CSVs imposed flow restriction? Amperage cut down to compensate?

  • I have added pressure regulators to supply lines to limit the pressure, I am not quite sure what a cycle stop valve is. – Ed Beal Jan 30 '17 at 17:23
  • This worked great. Booster pump derates and uses less electricity when restricted. I highly suggest this route for anyone on a well. – 0xb00 Mar 4 '17 at 15:20
