how do you adjust the water pressure on a well pump? Answered


If that didn't answer your question <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=adjust+well+pressure&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a">this</a> should help.<br />

Here's two links that should help you to understand how a pressure switch, pump, and pressure tank work:<br />http://www.catskillhouse.us/blog/well-pump-pressure-switch/<br />http://www.inspect-ny.com/water/WaterPumpAdjust.htm<br /><br />Keep in mind that you mainly are adjusting a 'window' at which the pump will turn on and off.<br /><br />Also you should check to make sure that the pressure tank is not 'Water Logged'. The will cause the pump to turn on more than nessesary.<br />If the tank is water logged, compressed air can be added,(12-20psi? ), check manufacture's specs.<br /><br />Hope this helps.<br /><br />pb<br />
