    I have a 1 HP 115V Grundfos water pressure booster in my house that is taking a dive. From what I have read and my experience with my pump, it's not the pump I should put back in my home. What is the most durable, reliable, and long lasting water pressure pump replacement out there for around $500-$600, or less? The Grundfos has only lasted about 4 years and they are pretty expensive to replace...can you help me? I just don't want to make another expensive mistake! What do you all recommend?

    That must be an “MQ”. Pretty much any standard cast iron jet pump will be better than the MQ. Stay with a brand name like Sta-Rite or Goulds. Then you can use a Pside-Kick kit with a CSV to get constant pressure, be able to use a small tank, and make the pump last a long time.
