A control unit can help you achieve a more precise application by maintaining a consistent pressure in the discharge line while you spray. This allows excess liquid flow to by-pass back to a tank or drain. Using a control unit will ensure that flow is cut off at a certain pressure to ensure a safe and accurate application.
Save money in chemical costs and time by installing a control unit on to your pump. Let’s take a look at one of our most popular control units:

Direct Mount Installation
1. First, you'll need to locate the pump discharge manifold.
2. Lubricate o-rings and plug into the discharge manifold of the pump.
3. Lock into place using the retainer clip.
4. Connect the bypass hose to the bypass port hose barb elbow. Run it unrestricted back to the supply tank.

Please note that the unused hose barb can be shut off with the ball valves provided.
If you are trying to decide whether a relief valve might be a better choice for you, we tackled the differences between control units and relief valves on our previous guest blog post, 5 Ways a Control Unit is Better Than a Relief Valve.
