Storage tank removal.

I have a storage tank (50 gal) i have to disconnect tomorow and replace with a new tank.
There is water in the tank (bladder type I think), but no pressure in the system! Do I have any problem I should be aware of?

sifter valve is the valve you put air into.....like on a car tire.

Storage tank removal.

The type of valve a tire or bladder tank uses is called a Schraeder valve. A snifter valve is the type an air volume control uses. Usually consists of a seat, ball, spring and diaphragm.

I never know if my replys get posted or not untill after I send!!
Something is wrong!

Can someone explain the process for removing the tank when ther is no pressure to remove the water in it?

Can someone explain the wiring of the 220 pressure switch correctly with a two wire + ground system? One wire is black one is white + bare ground.

I was close though on the name............it started with an S.




When you wire pump 240, tape a black marker on white wire, everywhere it is visible so you know that those are two 110 legs.


On your master disconnect, DO NOT USE CENTER LUG FOR GROUND.


Drain water completely out of tank.....by cutting pipe loose at bottom or by means of a boiler drain.
