Adding air to the tank will not help your problem but will create a worse one. Your pressure is close enough to the settings, gauges and switches are not always 100% accurate. Push the BYPASS button and see if the pressure changes. If so the pressure loss is in the softener.

: : : I recently installed a waterboss 700 watersoftener. The water pressure throughout the house has been reduced. I have an Amtrol WX-202 tank and a Pumptrol SquareD class 9013 pressure switch.

: : : 1) Is this normal?
: : : 2) Do I need to add air to the tank to compensate for 10' of new plumbing?
: : : 3) Can I adjust the cut-in of the switch for added pressure?
: : : 4) Any other remedies?

: : : Thanks.JOE What is the cut-in and cut-out pressures set at now? The instructions are on the inside cover of the 9013 switch. Post back if you need adjustment info....Hube

: Its suppose to be 30/50 but the gauge reads 28/48.
