Before you do anything, place the softener into the bypass mode. I think you will find that the pressure is fine when the softener is bypassed. A larger pipe only helps if you are using more water than the pipe can supply, and one or two faucets willnot overpower a 3/4" pipe.

: 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.
