In response to Re: Can I/Should I increase main supply line size from well

: I think my house has enough fixtures that indicates I could use 1" supply rather than 3/4". If someone could post or point me to the table where I can verify this it would be good. I need a larger pressure tank for the system. Can I increase my main from 3/4" to 1" when I change the tank without changing my pump?

You can always make the pipes larger. Friction loss hampers water volumn. Sizing the pipes bigger helps.
If you have less than 40 PSI at the pump, and more than two baths, you may want to upgrade to 1-1/4" or 1-1/5" water service.
