In response to Re: low water pressure

I read a thread that posted in April regarding low water pressure. I have the same problem here. We're on a well and all equipment seems to be operating properly, however, the household pump switch is 30/50 and I was told that a 40/60 was too much by a plumbing supplier.

I have seen home pump systems with the 40/60 on them.

There's a good chance that the lines have some build-up. Would it be limited to galvanized nipples or is it possible it effects all of the plumbing.

Yes, it's possible. Most galvanized piping is only good for 30 years before loosing volume.

Is it difficult to re-plumb with a manifold system?

With the right tools and instruction, no. They tend to be time savers.
