In response to Re: Well Pressure switch
The large one adjusts the pressure, (turn off point). You screw it in to increase the pressure. The small one controls the turn on point, but it is not a fixed setting. It works by determining the amount the pressure has dropped so that if it is set for 20psi, for example, then at 60 psi it will turn on at 40 #, but if set at 50 psi then it will turn on at 30#.

: I am looking for instruction on adjusting the pressure switch on my well Questions

: 1. There are 2 adjustable springs in the switch . A large one and a small one.Which one is for the well to start pumping (pressure below 40psi) and one for the pump to start pumping (60psi)
: 2. When adjusting the low end spring which way do you turn adjusting screw to increase pressure. Same with high end adjustment.
