In response to Re: water pressure questions
Does the Davey pump have a pressure switch and compression tank? If the answer to either is no, then it is not the right pump for that application. A pressure tank just stores the existing pressure it cannot raise the pressure higher than the city pressure.

: Hi I just found this site. Very informative.

: #1 My municipal water pressure is only 30psi. I purchased a Davey pressure boosting pump, which kicked it up to 95psi, which is to much. The Davey pump apparently does not have an adjustment to shut off the pump at the desired pressure. I am considering installing a in-line pressure cut off switch which is preset to shut the power feed off at 60psi. Is this the right way to solve this issue?

: #2 Could I of solved my low pressure problems by simply installing a well-trol pressure tank?

: Thanks, Todd
