Re: [Plumbing] Well Pump Upthrust issue: Dole Restrictor Valves good or bad?

said by SwedishRider:

...Gould's recommends use of a Dole Restrictor Valve to limit the maximum flow of the pump

Take their advice, they should know what is needed. Adding the backpressure would be the same as having a lower static water level in your well, IOW it's fine and normal.

What no one seems to be able to tell me is how much back pressure will be created in the piping from the dole valve back to the pump. A method on how to calculate it would be best actually. I don't mind putting one on there if there is no risk of excessively high pressure in those lines. It really is very similar to going with a CSV.

The last thing I need is to create enough back pressure to rupture a line underground or in the well.
