About This Product

Balance the air volume in galvanized water tanks when using deep well pumps with this Plastic Deep Well Air Volume Control. This float opens the main valve of the control in your system to allow access air out into the atmosphere. The float then rises with the water level and the main valve closes, trapping the remaining volume of air in the tank.

  • Deep well control
  • Durable plastic housing
  • Sealed plastic float, stainless steel rod and hardware

A:  This is not the F93B-1, but it is essentially the same item. Yes, it is tapped 1/4” FPT for a pressure gauge.

    Q:how do you correct "short" cycling? Worked good for several months
    by|Feb 27, 2019

    Answer This Question

    A:  The air volume control cannot stop the short cycling.. This problem specifically from a galvanized tank is when the tank becomes water-logged (more water than air) in tank. The air volume control is a device that injects air into the tank every time the pump turns on. We would suggest you empty the tank of all water and remove the large plug on the side of tank. Reinsert the plug which will capture air and refill. If you need to add more air you can do this with the air volume control. But when this happens quite often it is a sign of a bad tank. Moving to a precharged tank design would be your best move in the future if this does not work.

      A:  You have too much water in the tank. The air volume control only removes extra air, not water.

        Plastic junk. I could not get this control to seal on the 1-1/4" or the 1/4" threads. I followed the directions and it leaked badly. I then tried six wraps of Teflon tape and it leaked. I then tried pipe dope (joint compound) and it leaked. I then used Teflon tape and joint compound and turned it about 3-4 turns past hand tight and the 1-1/4" thread sealed....almost. One drop would form every 12 hours or so and eventually stopped. Great right? Heck no! Then the 1/4" gauge NPT thread started leaking. I gave it another turn (after going through the above procedure) and it stopped. Then after a month or so I was getting about 1/4 gallon a day leaking. I took the gauge off and put six wraps of Teflon tape and pipe dope, reinstalled and turned one turn with a wrench. Cracked. Took the valve out and threw it out. Put the old metal one that I cleaned up with muriatic acid back in. No leaks. Problem is I don't know if the it will let the air out or start dripping out the relief valve which was the original problem. I am going to buy a new metal one and just replace it every couple of years.....
