Can I install an AccuBoost accumulator vessel in a system with an incoming lead main?
An unpumped accumulator vessel can be installed in a system with an incoming mains pipe in any material.
A pumped accumulator vessel cannot be installed in a system with a restrictive incoming main, therefore cannot be installed to a lead main. If the system has a high pressure (over 2.0 bar) but has a restricted main, then an unpumped accumulator may still offer a solution – contact us for more information.
A sign of a restricted mains supply pipe would be a high standing pressure and low flow rate.
