    CSV questions

    I think you would just adjust your CSV to 54-55 and leave the pressure switch as is and also your air charge will stay the same. You are wanting more pressure while using water, correct?

    Pressure tank gauge drops to zero before pump cuts on

    I have a 40/60 switch also. I just run my tanks with 35 PSI. I figure if something is a little off you have more allowance with 35 plus it's only 3 PSI from the recommended 38 psi. No problems so far.

    Well water

    Cary, if you don't mind me asking what pressure do you run your pumps at? I'm sure you have all of yours on a CSV.

    Two pumps in well.

    Shouldn't the water filter be installed after the tank instead of between pump and tank, if I understood it's location correctly from above statement?

    Pressure Tank and CSV

    I would go with the 4.5 and see how that works out for you and the family. Then if you feel you need the 20 gallon also just add it along with the other one. I guess that would be ok.(two tanks). Have to ask Cary.

    PSI pushing power for 1.5HP Booster.

    If you are running 30-50 switch your air charge should be 25-28 lbs.

    CentriPro/Goulds 1AS15 Continous Flow Controller error need help please

    I use a heat bulb in mine and it works well. When it gets really cold I use an electric heater. Believe it or not, my bulb has lasted several years. It will probably blow when I turn it on this year since I said that. I have had them before that didn't last long but this one has been the exception.

    Pump or Pressure tank info

    If you are running a 30/50 pressure switch you should have 26 psi air in your pressure tank. It is best for the pump to run constant while watering.

    New guy trying to figure out pressure tank

    Turn the power off, drain the tank, then add air from 35-38 psi. Leave your faucet open where you drained tank while adding air. Then close faucet, turn on power and see what you get. When pump kicks off, put your pressure gauge on the valve on tank and see what your kick off pressure is. Your...

    Newbie Well Owner

    I would leave it at 45/65 with the 38 precharge. If your pump has a check valve on it, and pretty sure it does, you don't need another check valve on top. Just my opinion, but see what the others say because they know more than me about it. What size tank is yours? Hard to tell for me anyway...

    Pump And Pressure Tank Help

    Shouldn't the precharge be 58 instead of 78 as stated above for a 60/80 switch?

    Pressure Loss - Submersible Well Pump

    I had the same problem a few years ago. The pipe was split right about the pump. Pump guy cut that off, connected it all back up and is running fine still. I would check that out otherwise you will burn your pump up eventually. No need in that when it can easily be fixed. My pump is 15 years old...

    Low water pressure on well system.

    How much air is in your tank? You know you have to drain it to check it. Why not just set the pressure up some. Maybe 45-65?? How big is your tank? I'm not familiar with a 140?. Oh and I wouldn't worry about the 5lb. loss of pressure. You could set your switch for 40-65, then after tank settles...
