of a $400 tank. The valve costs 250, so it may be overkill. But it
will protect the pump & make it semi-constant pressure like (50 psi).
Also, make sure you check the pressure in the tank with zero water
pressure in the system once a year - Ie drain the water system, then
check the air pressure at the top of the tank with a tire gauge, it
should read 2psi below system on-pressure (depends on pressure switch,
usually 40-60 on/off or 30-50 on/of, so you'd set the tank to 38psi or
