Ordered a 5lb pressure regulator from BeakTime LINK HERE
I am curious how to install this properly. Currently i have a 5gallon bucket with a float valve going to 4 nipples. i then have a pipe going up that is higher than the bucket to release some of the pressure. i still seem to have more pressure than needed / reccomended because when i activate the nipples, it sort so streams out and not just a drip or two. i have a Ragu Sauce plastic jar with a few nipples in that and they just drip when activated and not spray.
so, with the regulator, do i need the breather or no? cant i just put a cap at the end of the pvc.. by the way i am using 1/2 and i have had to seal each nipple multiple times.. i think i will change to 3/4.. should this help?
See the picture below. coming in from the left is a pipe underground from my water line at the house. i have a shut off valve with a garden hose on it too, which is used to clean things. pretty nice. what i am thinking of doing is feeding a line back out the coop for an outside set of nipples.
i want to be sure that when water goes through the regulator that only 5lb is inside it and that i do not need a breather line like i currently have.. or if i am wasting my time all together?
side note.. the red is where i added a pcv pipe.. the water line is about the height of the top of the word Lowes
