Precision Plumbing Products

This innovative trap priming system automatically primes up to four floor drain traps using our patented water distributsion system. The PRIME-RITE requires no adjustment but must be installed on a cold water line of 1-1/2" (38mm) diameter or less. The priming valve is automatically activated when it senses a pressure drop of 5 to 10 P.S.I.G. (35 to 70 kpa). The valve's operating range is 35 to 75 P.S.I.G. (245 to 535 kpa). All PR-500 Valves include integral vacuum breaker parts.

The PR-500 Prime-rite trap primer is an easy to use and install product. It has a 1/2" inch inlet and outlet to connect to most normal lines and can be installed on cold water lines 1-1/2" diameters or less. The PR-500 also adjusts to line pressure to keep you from worrying about the trap primer when it's in use.

Q:Morning How many litres are discharged on each operation ?Griffiths Plumbing | Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Know the answer? Sign in to answer this question.
A:
According to the manufacturer: The amount of water discharged from a PR-500 can vary based on system pressure but they do not come close to discharging liters of water. It would be more like mili-liters.
