I have a 1/2 hp Goulds model 7GS05 pump.
I believe that the pump is underpowered.
the pump's output at 10 the psi is constant at 8+ gpm.
At the normal 40 to 60 psi setting the pressure drops rapidly to 40 psi and will only deliver about 3 gpm and the pump runs constantly untill the faucet is closed.
Rather than replacing the pump, I believe that a booster pump in line to the pressure storage tank would solve my problem.
My question is, can I install a 8 gpm pump (1/2 hp that has a pressure rating of 30psi in series with my existing well before the pressure control so that it will only will also
turn on when the well pump turns on?
Can I use the same pressure control to control both pumps?
Will the existing pressure control unit be able to operate two motor starters?
