Re: Whole house water help

You have normal water pressure. What's the actual problem?

Volume is the issue but it seems you need to increase pressure to increase volume. Most of the stuff I see online says you want around 70 psi so being at 50ish means there's room for improvement.

What is their reasoning for the 70 psi? Nobody on a well system has that kind of pressure. I do just fine with my 50 psi. I used to have 55 psi but my pump is wearing so I had to lower the pressure switch.

Where and when are you seeing low volume?

Pressure/volume stays the same no matter what we do. Even with 2 showers going it's the same as just the kitchen sink running. It's not horrible if you install low flow stuff but still sub-par on the best day. It takes 1 minute 40 seconds to fill up the humidifier container. It use to take ~60 seconds at the old place. I believe the contain is like 3 gallons. Just looking to improve that from 1 minute 40 seconds to as close to 60 seconds as I can. If I could boost the water by even 30% that would be perfect.
