Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Wow, great pressure switch!!!
Great product! I bought a house pump from Harbor Freight for my irrigation system and that switch that came with it never shut-off. I bought this HD switch and just wired it in thru the switch housing that was part of the pump. It was very easy to do and I also bought the 44 gallon Water Works pressure tank from HD and put it in my crawl space (no easy task as I had to dig a little under house beams to get the tank in, but it was well worth it). I did have some leaks, unrelated to this switch. I used Teflon tape and ended up redoing with the plumbers goo for the threaded connections and that did the trick! Also, with this switch you can tighten the spring to achieve up to 85 lbs of pressure. I backed off to 75 lbs. instead of the default 60 lbs just to get all the heads up initially because I have more heads than recommended per zone. I have an awesome set up with the house pump, HD pressure switch and Water Works pressure tank. It will stand any sprinkler head at attention!!! I am on city water, but the knuckleheads that put my main water line in used a 3/4 pipe. Who does that to a house? Anyway this set up I have more than makes up for it. Highly recommend this setup even if you have a 1" to the house. Good luck!!!

I had a 30/50 lb version of this for a dozen years and it never failed. I got a new one to upgrade to a bigger pressure tank and 40/60 pressure. Easy to wire up, working fine.

Your basic pressure switch. Bought this and did my own residential replacement of my old 18 year old switch instead of calling the pros. Looks good works well, gave everything 5 stars. Easy installation because I'm just that darn good. Highly recommended. Even though it's a 40/60 switch I used the adjustment to crank it up to 55/75. I swapped out my old pressure gauge for a new one too, I recommend it if it's old and rusty. Thanks for a quality product.
