Shared well and well supply
Posted by Don M on May 13, 2004 at 22:43:10:
I own a duplex which gets it's water from a community well that runs three houses. In the house we have a 3/4" supply line that splits and runs both sides of our duplex. It's distributed via 1/2" copper pipe throughout the house. Incoming pressure is around 45 PSI. I live in one side and rent out the other. When anyone uses water in the house it dramatically affects everyone else, especially if taking a shower. I was considering various boosters such as the Flotec. Do pressure boosters work? When it kicks in will it affect my tenant? Any suggestions or other ideas are really appreciated. I'm in the process of remodeling so most of my plumbing is exposed and easily replaced.
