low water volume
Posted by jeff on December 15, 2003 at 10:05:51:
I am still having problems with very low water volume in my 2 story house. Water pressure has always be lower on the second floor which is understandable but lately if the washer is running or a toilet is flushed there is no water on the second floor at all.

I am on a 160 foot well with a 3/4 hp pump at 140 feet with at static water level of about 30 feet.

My pressure tank is about 15 years old and is a 20 gallon tank. The pressure switch is a Square D which is set for 30/50.

I have set the pressure in the tank to 28lbs but I still have little ot no water on the second floor and the washer takes for ever to fill.

Does anybody have any ideas what might help correct the problem?
