MANIFOLD INSTALLATIONS Manifold installations of multiple tanks are used when the water demands require it. In this type of installation the volume of water on hand can be increased substantially. 13 shows how a manifold installation is executed. The illustrations in this section show how pressure tanks are mounted and the normal piping arrangements. FINE-TUNING YOUR INSTALLATION Fine-tuning your installation is the last step in installing a pressure tank. This takes place when the pump, electrical wiring, and all piping and FINE-TUNING YOUR INSTALLATION ■ 53 fittings have been installed to connect the pressure tank to the water distribution system.

However, they may not provide details on how deep the water in the well is. Determining water depth in a shallow well is easy. Glue two 20-foot sections of rigid plastic piping together and push this pipe into the water and to the bottom of the well. Since most shallow wells are less than 40 feet deep, there should be pipe showing above the water level. You can simply measure the distance between the water level and the top of the pipe that is above the water. If there is 6 feet of pipe sticking out of the water, the depth of the water in the well is 34 feet.

Not all pressure tanks do this. As a master plumber, I prefer to use stand models whenever I can, and many installers share my sentiment. IN-LINE MODELS In-line pressure tanks have very limited holding capacity. A small model will hold only 2 gallons, and 14 gallons is about the average maximum capacity that you can find. This is not a lot of reserve water, and a pump will cycle more often than it should when the holding capacity is this low. So why would you use an in-line tank? As the name implies, these tanks are piped right into the water supply and water distribution piping.
