How do you adjust a Square D water pressure switch?

How do you adjust a Square D water pressure switch?

Turning the smaller nut and spring will adjust the upper end cut off pressure. Moving the nut in a clockwise direction will raise the upper limit of the pumps operation. Turning the nut in a counter clockwise direction will lower that overall cut off pressure. Exercise caution when adjusting this setting.

How do I adjust my pressure switch?

To increase or lower both cut-on and cut-off pressure you will turn the nut on top of the large center spring as seen in the picture below. You will turn the nut counterclockwise to lower both cut-on and cut-off pressure or turn the nut clockwise to raise both cut-on and cut-off pressure.

What is cut-in and cut-out pressure?

Cut-in and cut-out pressure These are simply the two pressures at which the compressor starts and stops. The compressor will stop when it reaches the cut-out pressure and will start again when the pressure drops back to the cut-in pressure. So, the cut-in pressure is always lower than the cut-out pressure.

What PSI should my pressure tank be?

Your well tank’s pressure should be set at 2 psi below the pressure switch’s cut-on point. This differs depending on your tank’s pressure settings. Most well tanks come set at 30/50. The cut-on pressure for the well pump is 30 psi, so the pressure of the tank should have a pressure of 28 psi.

How do you adjust a water pressure switch?

To increase the cut-off and cut-on pressure, turn the nut clockwise . The rate of increase is 2 1/2 PSI for every complete turn of the nut. (i.e. 4 complete clockwise turns will raise the pressure setting 10 PSI.) Pressure switches with two posts allow adjustment of the cut- on and cut-off pressure at the same time.

How do you adjust the pressure on a pressure switch?

To adjust the cut-in and cut-off pressure of your pressure switch, turn off power to pump and remove the switch’s cover. Using a wrench, tighten the nut on the big spring to increase the pressure, or loosen it to reduce the pressure. Each turn produces about 2-3 psi change in pressure.
