Re: Whole house water help

50 to 55 lb pressure is considered to be fairly normal household water pressure. If as you say the pressure stay the same even with multiple fixtures open then I am not fully understanding why you think you have an issue.

Some of the suggestions, like adding a booster pump or increasing pipe size really wont help. Pumps can only work with the water available. If the city is supplying water at a set rate a pump can only provide a boost in pressure if for say the horizontal runs creates lower pressure in certain areas of the house. But you have already stated that pressure is constant.
