This pre-assembled kit allows for the use of a 1/2 liter accumulator (pressure tank) to be used with a bottle water pump system like the Flojet BW5000 Series Bottle Water pump or the Caffewerks CW 5000.
The addition of an accumulator will allow better pressure for your espresso equipment and pitcher rinser and also keeps the pump from over cycling ( Turning on and off )
The kit is designed around 3/8" beverage tubing as a standard however we can supply additional fittings to match your current plumbing.

I bought this to use with a Flojet pump that I bought separately. This kit had everything I needed to plumb the pump to my standard threaded espresso machine. I would have bought the pump and accumulator set at caffewerks, but the Flojet was out of stock at the time. The accumulator works perfectly, leveling out the water pressure to my espresso machine and reducing pump cycling. I am very happy with Caffewerks for making this solution available.
Thank you so much Caffewerks, for replying to all my enquiries and sending this all the way to South East Asia. This adds more stability and only throttles after a few brews. Running only the BW5000 will throttle the motor each time you brew, so there is a difference. I’d also like to add that if you’re reading this and looking for a new water pump system, consider the other newer, more advanced packages packaged and developed by Caffewerks as they’d be far more stable. Thank you so much once again.
The accumulator tank worked out great and customer service is excellent. I had questions and Sean and Sara both went above and beyond to be helpful. Thanks again!
