    Two people in the house. Sometimes shower spits air. Pressure low. Reverse osmosis valve clicks. What other info can I provide?

    On the backside of the tank, about half way up, there should be a fitting screwed into a 1.5” bung in the tank. It probably has the pressure switch screwed into it. Remove the fitting from the 1.5” bung and replace it with a new AVC or Air Volume Control. This will let out the excess air so it doesn’t end up in the shower.

    Then tighten the big adjustment only in the pressure switch about 3 full turns to increase the pressure a bit.
