I have a Hydrotek 5.5 GPM 3500 PSI. I have installed a homemade winterizing system using RV antifreeze in a small poly tank. My problem is that the unloader bypasses RV antifreeze into the buffer tank while I am running the system to circulate the antifreeze. I can’t easily remove the bypass hose from the buffer tank due to how tight everything is space/plumbing wise.
My question is, can I cut the existing bypass hose at some point between the unloader and the buffer tank, and install a three way valve that I can turn to redirect the bypass water to my antifreeze tank instead of the buffer tank? I’ve heard that messing with the bypass hose length, diameter, etc. can negatively impact the performance of the unloader.
