Can you increase flow on a well water system. they run at lower pressure than city water.. My well pump system ranges between around 30-40 PSI compared to city water at 60 plus PSI. These new faucets run at 2.2 Gallons per minute or less at 60PSI.. Lower pressure- lower volume..

any ideas without destroying the faucet nozzle??

Thanks Tony

Depends on what you have for a pump system. A good pump can produce 60 PSI and coupled with a Cycle Stop Valve (CSV) can provide near constant pressure as well.

The first question would be how/why the pressure switch is set to 30-40? Most switches have a differential of 20 PSI so 20-40 or 30-50 is more to be expected. Do you have a micronizer that may limit the range?
