I just bought an old victorian house,it has a well system,I have no info on the well pump,it has a 1" outlet on the pressure tank
and the gauge reads 40 psi.
Currently there is 3/4" cpvc cold water feed that goes about 30 feet to a crawl space beneath the kitchen floor where it is
In the old kitchen I will be keeping the sink and adding a washing machine, and feeding a sink and dishwasher in the new
What is the proper way to feed this setup, to get proper pressure and volume?
Should I run a 1" cold main to the old kitchen, then feed all the fixtures with 1/2", or will a 3/4" main sufice?
Should I extend the 1" or 3/4" main up to the bathroom?
Should I replace the 1/2" hot water main with 3/4" (there are 3/4" fitting on the water heater)?
P.S. I will be installing and aeration/carbon filter for hydrogen sulfide removal after the pressure tank, if this would affect
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Barry Larkin
