    Well Saver Pump Tank
    My husband purchased a horizontal series pump tank for our well to create larger presser. He has built a stand to make it vertical. Is this okay?

    A bladder tank's not designed to increase your pressure. Just to give you a longer more steady flow before the pimp kicks on. You may mount it in any position. If hubby wishes to increase the pressure have him click on back and I'll walk him through the process. Cheers, Tom

    Speedball, I am interested in increasing pressure myself. My pump cuts out at 62# which you would think would be plenty. I seem to have more pressure at outside faucets than inside the house. I am using a 45 gallon or so bladder tank and am able to run 7 gallons before the pump cuts back in at 40# so I feel OK about that. Other than increasing the cutin/cutout points, what else can be done?
