Bigger pressure tank or increase pressure?
Asked Nov 23, 2006, 08:31 AM
I bought a new home and the builder had installed a 20 gal pressure tank. I have a jet pump system where the motor sits directly on the tank itself. I really notice the pump running a bit,but also notice the loss of pressure quickly, especially in the shower.
Now I was thinking of buying a much bigger tank, maybe 40-50 or even an 86 gallon tank. Will this help my problem... or will just adjusting my cut in/out pressure on the tank work..
Oh by the way.. I live with my wife, 3kids and My dang mother-in-law with her teenager is staying with us.. so total 7 people in the home.
