Pressure problem on jet pump
Just getting finished installing water softener and iron filter. Was going to raise the pressure of the pump up to 60/40. Its a 50/30 now. Pressure in house after going through filters is not quite what it was.
Anyways - pumps kicks on at 30psi runs until about 52psi and kicks off. Pressure immediately drops to 45psi and stays there. It was doing this before any filters were added. Pressure gauge is on top of pump and the line for the switch is off the front of pump. Am I getting a false reading since its mounted on the pump? It will hold the 45psi until you run the water and kicks back on at exactly 30psi every time.
Its a goulds JRD10 jet pump, bladder tank (set at 28psi). Its mounted to the well casing.
