The Jabsco Accumulator Tank is intended for installation in any pumped water system controlled by a pressure switch. For example, PAR-MATE 2.5 or any Jabsco pressure pumps as found in boats, RV's, motor caravans, coaches and similar applications. The Accumulator Tank smooths water flow and reduces on/off cycling of the pump by minimizing water pressure and flow variations between the pump and outlets in the system.
The even flow of water gives better control of hot water temperature, especially noticeable with instantaneous gas water heaters and with showers. The reduced on/off cycling reduces noise from the pump motor, and from shock pressures (pipe hammer). It also reduces battery drain, and extends pump life.

Smoother and more even flow.
Quieter water system.
Better temperature control.
Lower battery drain.
Simply fitted to new or existing systems.
Snap-in port fittings include both: 1/2 inch barbed hose fittings and 1/2 inch threaded hose fittings.
Capacity: 1 liter
Max. operating pressure: up to 125 psi (8.6 bar)
Pre-charge pressure: 10 psi (0.7 bar)
Air valve: standard tire valve.
If you add air pressure 45psi will the system pressure stay smother .?
It should work so the water runs smoother.
Do you have to add air to this unit periodically to keep pressure up?
No. The purpose of the air bladder is to provide more uniform water pressure and no air needs to be added.
can the tank be installed hanging down? The air nozzle would be down. My water lines run at the top of the bilge just under the floor boards and there is nor room to have it stick up a foot
this unit can be mounted any orientation.
very happy with purchase
I was suprised how compact this unit was. its the same size as my parmax pump and the quick disconnect fittings are a great idea. easy install, very happy with purchase
