Product Overview

This Plastic Deep Well Air Volume Control maintains the balance of air volume in galvanized water tanks when using deep well pumps. When there is an excess of air and the water level is low, the float opens the main valve of the control, permitting air to be vented to a chamber within the control. This chamber contains a pressure relief valve which exhausts the excess air to the atmosphere, providing the pressure in the tank is higher than the relief valve setting. As the float rises with the increase in water level the main valve closes, trapping the remaining volume of air in the tank.

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.....

    Works for me.
    The Johnson Controls F93B-1 float valve on my well developed a leak. The new valve might not last as long but it's cheaper and works. I would advise not using too much tape on the pressure valve or over tightening it. I think that what killed my old one. Good value. Good product.
