    Water volume low, will pressure booster alone help?

    First time posting. I read through other booster pump posts but dont think they directly answered my question. I'm having an issue with water pressure/volume at my house. House was built in 1938. Turning on one faucet no real problem. But turn more than one on or use an appliance like washer...
