Installing a heat-pump water heater

Plumbing a pressure tank

We added a pressure reducing valve and a pressure tank before installing our heat pump water heater.

Total elapsed time for the entire project was three hours hands-on plus two hours at Lowes.

I guess you must be on city water using an expansion tank and pressure regulator, I'm on well water and the and the cold water tank acts as the expansion tank and the pump pressure switch is set at 30 to 50 psi.

Next year I also have plans for a couple mini split heat pumps, an easy do it yourself project with the precharged systems on the market now.
