Wrap threads on all male fittings (1/4" x 2" nipple, 3/4" X 1/4" reducer bushing, 3/4" PRV, pressure gauge, and hose bib) with 5-7 layers of teflon tape.
Assemble the valve/manifold as shown. The pressure relief valve will need to be plumbed to a drain or outside. If mounting the kit to the wall and intending on plumbing your tank into the manifold pressure tank port, do not plumb in your pressure tank until manifold has been mounted to wall.
This kit does not include a pressure tank but this system does require one. You can use the pressure tank you already have or you can replace it with a smaller pressure tank. We recommend no smaller than 20 gallons total capacity and no larger than 44 gallons total capacity size tank if replacing your old pressure tank. If plumbing your tank into the pressure tank port on the Cycle Stop Valve, port size is 3/4" female NPT. (See the instructions in the CSV2W box for specific valve settings if using tanks larger than 44 gallon)
Step 3: Fully Assembled Kit
Step 4 (if mounting to wall)
Mount assembly to wall stud
- Re-attach clamps/pvc spacers and all thread bolts to the wall bracket. Tighten lock nuts.
- Tighten the clamp bolts for stability.
Note: Kit can be installed in any position.
Testing the System
Important Note: Be sure all pipe fittings between the pump and the Pside-Kick® are rated to handle the maximum pressure the pump can build at shut off or dead head.
Before attaching system pipe to the Pside-Kick®, attach power wire to pressure switch and pump as per pressure switch wiring diagrams below and run pump until water is clear so that you don't fill up the kit with debris.
- Once the water being pumped is clean, connect the pump discharge piping to the intake of the CSV2W (see direction of flow arrow on valve casting).
- Open your hose bib or faucet to a 6-7 gpm demand or flow. Turn on the pump (if there are any leaks, tighten fittings as necessary).
- Run pump until air is out of the system and check to make sure the Cycle Stop Valve is holding approximately 50 PSI and the pump does not cycle off (the pump stays running).
- Close your hose bib/faucet (the time it takes to reach shut off pressure will vary with your pressure tank size but ideally we are looking for a run time of 1-2 minutes here). After the pump turns off, open your hose bib/faucet again to a 6-7 gpm flow. The pressure should begin to drop as the pressure tank empties. Once system pressure drops to your cut in PSI, the pump should come back on. Once the pressure reaches your valve set PSI, the CSV2W will begin to control the pump and the pressure should stop rising and hold constant as long as a demand of more than 5 gpm is being used.
