Jabsco Accumulator Tanks Information
The Jabsco Accumulator Tanks can be used is light pressurised water systems to smooth out water flow and make it more even, reduce wear on your water pump and make the water system more quieter.
The rubber membrane within the tank expands and contracts depending on the air pressure inside the accumulator tank. This regulates the amount of water which can be stored in the tank depending on your boat water pumps cut-in pressure.
It is a good idea to fit an accumulator tank to your boats water system if you are using a pressure water pump. The tank can be fitted in any orientation just after the pump. These accumulator tanks are designed for small sized water systems on small sized boats. If in doubt it is better to fit a larger accumulator tank.
What is an Accumulator Tank
Accumulator tanks act as a buffer, smoothing the flow of water from the water pump to the tap. The tank keeps a reservoir of water which helps ease the strain on the pump. With an accumulator tank the pump doesn't need to start immediately and doesn't rapidly cycle on and off meaning you get a much smoother flow of water and reduce wear on the pump at the same time. This accumulator tank can be used on cold water systems.
- Smoother water flow from your tap (the water no longer pulsates)
- Reduce wear on your pump
- Reduce battery usage as the pump doesn't turn on as frequently
- Quieter water system operation
The Jabsco accumulator tanks have a mounitng point for optional pressure switch.
