    If that’s the case, I’m thinking I’ll just go with a bigger tank in house number 1, and not put a tank in the new house. Water will run back and forth in the line between tank and T, but it sounds like that isn’t a problem.

    Instead of a larger tank, install a CSV to increase the system performance to both homes, and extend the lifespan of the pump. A larger pressure tank will only reduce cycling whereas a CSV will eliminate cycling even when using a 4.5 gallon pressure tank.

    Thanks, and the best place to install the CSV in my system is? Between T and pump?
