    I want to avoid pressure fluctuation

    The reason I need 80psi at the pump level is that my pressure switch has a differential of 20psi so it turns pump on at 60 and off at 80 and I fixed a pressure regulator at the flat entrance set at...

    The second pump would stop when the pressure build up reaches 80psi .

    What I plan is that when the city pressure is too low to allow the main pump to build up 80psi for the pressure switch to shut...

    I think the reverse acting pressure switch together with that small bladder tank is the best idea
    But how you say that I should set it up to shut down the pump at 10psi and restart it at 30 or 40?...

    What you mean by " simple latch" ?
    The pump starts by a pressure switch when the pressure in the pressure tank drops down to the cut in pressure
    How you would the flow switch work with that system?
