We've had a lot of people asking: Does a Freeze Miser work on pressure switches on water wells?
The answer is yes!
In this video, Robert Doolin and I discuss what you need in order to do so.
Below is modified summary of the transcription of this video that covers what you'll need, what steps to take, and some additional tips.
To use a Freeze Miser on a pressure switch for your water well, you'll need your pressure switch, a quarter-inch male, female-quarter inch tee, and a quarter-inch nipple to attach:
This connector goes into your pipe and is where your pressure comes from:
Then you can attach a quarter-inch female hose thread:
The Freeze Miser can then be screwed right onto that hose thread:
If your connection is inside the well house, for example, and you want to run it out, you can attach a short piece of hose and run it through the wall or somewhere and put the end outside where it's colder:
Then you can put your Freeze Miser on the end of that hose:
As long as the hose and water in the freeze miser are colder than the connector, it will properly protect the pressure switch.
Tip: Use a Valve
Here's a convenient way to hook a Freeze Miser to a pressure switch. In addition to the tee and the quarter inch nipple, we put a valve on here:
With this valve we can turn off the water so we can take the Freeze Miser off for use:
Then we can put it back on when finished--be sure to turn the water back on at the valve after reinstalling the Freeze Miser.
Additionally, you can hook a hose there and run it outside where it's colder, and connect the Freeze Miser to the end of the hose.
