water pressure
Posted by Jeff M. on September 16, 1998 at 12:56:59:
Pressure and supply are fine until you-- (example) You are taking a shower(supply & pressure fine) a
toilet is flushed -- pressure/supply drop in shower. 2nd example -- kitchen faucet on (pressure/supply
fine) open an outside bib -- pressure/supply in kitchen drops.
Will increasing 40' of copper pipe (currently 3/4" dia.) with 1 1/4" dia pipe increase my pressure/supply?
Will this increase in pipe size to 1 1/4" dia. stop drops in pressure when more then one appliance(i.e.
shower/toilet, shower/washing machinge)is in use? The 40' would be from the meter up to my water
softner.
Sincerely,
Jeff M.
