Connecting to a Water Source If you live in a mild climate, you only need an outdoor faucet to connect to. Start by turning off the water supply and draining the faucet; then remove the tap. Install a galvanized or brass tee, making sure to use the right size for the faucet and the irrigation pipes. Put the faucet back on again, and then use a nipple a length of pipe that has threads on both ends to connect the shutoff valve to the tee. Connecting at the Main Supply Line Connecting to a Water Source Make sure to turn off the water before the location where you plan to cut into the pipe. To make a connection aboveground, cut out a short piece of pipe in the supply line, install a slip tee, and attach a nipple to the stem for the shutoff valve.

Before or After the Well Pressure Tank? At Clean Water Systems, our Water Specialists receive a lot of questions regarding advice on this issue. For example, a system installed to treat iron-rich water that is high in hardness, should be set up according to the schematic diagram below: The iron filter needs to be installed after the pressure tank. If it is installed before the pressure tank, it will not be able to backwash automatically. The filter needs varying amounts of flow and pressure. If installed before the pressure tank, the well pump would not automatically turn on, since the pressure switch is located on the pressure tank side of the check valve.

Selecting the Solar Pump Submersible Solar Pumps can lift up to feet and fit in a 4" or larger well casing and are used when the water supply is deeper than 20 feet from the surface. Submersible solar pumps can operate directly off solar panels, batteries, or in some cases, an AC power source. Water is usually pumped during the day when the sun is shining and stored in a cistern or tank for use whenever needed. It is recommended that several days worth of water is stored to be prepared for stretches of bad weather when no water is pumped.
