So you use a booster pump, and you want the security of having a timer-controlled valve on your purification system feedwater. The valve will stop the flow of feedwater, but how will you control the electrical circuit powering the booster pump? When the water flow stops, you want the pump to turn off. When the feedwater starts to flow again, you want the pump to turn on.

With a Buckeye Hydro low pressure switch (http://www.buckeyehydro.com/low-pressure-switch/), of course!

This low pressure switch has a single 1/4" female threaded port, and automatically turns the booster pump off when pressure in the system is low. When the feedwater flow returns, the switch re-energizes the pump. Has two plastic electrical plugs compatible with Aquatec products: http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd293/BuckeyeFS/Low_Pressure_Switch_zps2z4zlrne.png
