    Talking Go Big Or Stay Home

    Yes go to the higher pressure rateing on your pump

    It really isnt that much higher and everything will work fine....

    maybe change out the washing machine hoses

    mayube the ballcocks but thats about it

    Default psi

    Houses that are not on pump systems often start at 60 psi and go up from there so you should have no problem with the greater pressure.
