Since a pressure increaser is just another well pump system, your existing pump should have the capacity to be increased to 60-65 p.s.i. and give youa greater volume. the 40 gallon tank is rather small for a residence. You might increase it to 100 gallons.

: We have a house with an approximately 40 gallon pressure tank that runs at an average of 35 psi.
: I'd like to be able to increase the overall house pressure in order to run toilet flushometer valves and to
: be able take a shower and wash dishes at the same time. I understand that there are pressure boosting
: systems that might be useful here but I don't know anything more than that they exist. What are my
: options? Thanks.
