The CRB/Tom Wand fad is wrong.

how does a pulse dampener effect PSI?
he could remove the dampener and screw a plug in the hole temporarily to find out if that's it, no??

I'd do that before I let Butler hose me on their price for a dampener

..L.T.A.
I’m picking up a new unit in 12 days and they only warranty the chem system for 90 days Probably why Hagopian uses a different one on their fleet

Butler Chem systems just like PC actually

Stainless steel block.

Set of Plunger and plastic disc and some check valves and o rings.

Simple to work on actually

I can swap out a rubber diaphram on site easy peasy.... And shoot a video 😁

There's no comparison. My Butler is limping right now with a pulse in the line and I can't draw rinse at all. I have a pulsation dampener that will be delivered tomorrow that will hopefully clear it up.
I had a problem just like that and it was a tiny sliver of brass from a threaded connector got logged in one of the cat pump check valves and would not close.

Most systems require water in all hoses. When your solution tank is empty your system will spike and slow the water flow. Once the tank is full and bled no problem with pressure and flow. Very simple system but very important to flow properly. jz.

Good luck Russ... I've spent thousands over the years trying to get the Chem meter system operating correctly on our Butlers....


Only to have them crap out again within a few months


I shut the ball valves and take it out of the equation... clear water rinse only
I had the exact same problem with both of my Butler units. I do clear water rinse and it solved the problem.
