    New Submersible Well Pump not building enough pressure

    So we have very hard water. Learned most of our plumbing skills by trial and error. Here's my issue. We installed a new .5HP submersible well pump. It will not build up pressure above like 16-17psi. Pressure tank is only 3 weeks old so that's not it. Bought a new 20/40 Pressure switch...

    CSV troubleshooting

I have some type of flow regulator on my household system made by Jacuzzi [BRO8] that was installed in 1974, but I don't know if it's a CSV or VFD or XYZ. It is installed near the...

    Wilkins 975xl Flow/Pressure Issues

    I have a Wilkins 975xl backflow preventer. It is removed every winter and passes its test before every spring. That said - my sprinkle output is very weak. Each time I run the sprinklers I have to shut off the water coming from the Wilkins and open the three relief valves. This can be done...
