This is the information as I know at this time. In mid October I plan on doing preventive maintenance and determine flow rates and pressure settings checks. I have had this cabin 15 years and there has been no problems and also no preventive maintenance or pressure setting checks. I know the day will come with a problem and trying to be proactive to understand what I have and how it is set up. The 1.5hp pump seems large to me but maybe not. I will update the below info after mid Oct.
