The accumulator just takes the extra flow and stores it.

The instructions said to set the bladder within 2 psi of the delivery pressure. My pump is supposed to make 50 psi, according to the specs sheet. In reality, it's more like 35 or 40 psi. I set the bladder based off the high shut off pressure. Guys say you can play with the bladder pressure to get the most capacity possible. I kind of set it and forgot about it. lol
Good, just dont leave them at the factory 2 psi or whatever they put in them, they wear out quick if the pressure isnt close to delivery pressure.
