    New construction: Gravity feed system from two 1200 gallon holding tanks via a 2" line into house with 55 psi measured. I am thinking that I would like to boost that pressure to about 70-80 psi. Am I better using a booster pump with a small holding tank or a shallow well pump with a large holding tank? It's a large family with three bathrooms.

    Or am I going for overkill?
