Water Accumulator

Does anyone recommend a specific brand/model for a Water Accumulator? Looking to do this mod but I have only seen a picture from Dave961 when he installed one on his 27hfs (and can't see the brand/model in the pic...).

Thanks...

At first I didn't know what an water accumulator was I just had to look it up. seeing it now i want too install one too my water system as it knocks like crazy. I also have the 27hfs. It appears to me it hooks up right after the pump. Amazon has them for around $35

If you're going to go the DIY route, I would NOT use PVC as the guy from that link did. PVC should not be used for "suppy" water, only for "drain" or "waste" water. There's chemicals in PVC that can leach out of the pipe and into your drinking water, especially if the water has a lot of contact time inside the accumulator. Use CPVC.

Carry on...

The one I bought allowed me to take off the cold supply line to the outside "shower" valve and screw those lines to the accumulator (in series) without using anything other than a standard old fashioned pair of pliers that let me snug up the plastic nuts. Kind of hard to get to and I couldn't get it tight enough with fingers alone. Nothing else to buy. It doesn't matter what line its on, just needs to be the cold water side. I did screw on a tyrap mount and used a tyrap. Also, check the air pressure before turning the water back on.... its in the instructions. Works well.

This is what I bought http://www.homehardware.ca/en/rec/in...Ntt=water+tank (you can find it cheaper than this site) it is larger than a shurflo and works great if you have the room.

Tiny (Accumulators) help a Tiny bit in regards to (hammering)! Find a location where a (Large Accumulator) 3-5Gal.will fit! This can be Teed in(Anywhere) in the Cold water pressure side! This will give you (All night Toilet/sink operation Without the Pump (Instantly Running) Smooth constant flow Showers and more Water capacity! NOTE-Place a S/O valve on the outlet of the Accumulator for (Winterizing)! Lowes or HD have them. Youroo!!
