General water pressure problems
Posted by Bob on August 08, 1999 at 10:46:03:
I live in a fifty year old house with city water. The water main is original, I think 3/4 inch copper. Not unexpectedly, both the hot and cold water pressure is low and, practically speaking, only one spicket can be used at a time.
I've talked to several local plumbers and I get two recommendations.
The ones who specialize in water mains say I need a new 1 inch line.
The ones who specialize in pumps say I need a in-house booster.
Some general contractors (more independent?) have told me the city pressure is low in my neighborhood.
One neighboor uses a booster and has good results.
What should I do?
