    Gravity cistern, no pump, need select higher pressure

    Is there a way to increase the pressure only to our toilet tank? Something that would simply be inline of the toilet tank supply line (between the shutoff valve next to the toilet and the toilet tank)? The cost of water, and the lack of problems with the dish and clothes washers means we aren't...

    New Shallow well pump not building up pressure

    I just replaced the shallow well pump with same Horse Power as the old one. For some reason the new pump is not able to build pressure over 10psi. It primes good.
