My current set-up:
- Well 150' deep with 2 HP submersible pump,
- 2000 Gal. Holding tank with 2 HP submersible pump,
- 80 Gal. Pressure tank set at 42/64 on pressure switch,
From the holding tank to the house is 350' with a 1" water line and a 40 foot elevation increase, Water pressure at the house on the outside water bid is 38 PSI.
I want to install in the garage from the main water line in this order to increase the water pressure:
- Sediment filter,
- 1 & 1/2 HP booster pump and set the pressure switch at 30/50,
- Water Filter,
- Water softener.
By doing this in this order will this be OK.
I have one pump in the well and one pump in the holding tank. If I move the pressure tank to the house 350 feet away wouldn't I have to run another electrical line from the holding tank pump to the pressure tank in the house?
I do see what you are saying, and everything you said makes complete sense, which would spare me the cost of buying a booster pump if I move the pressure tank to the house.
But if I can't move the pressure tank to the house, can I still put a booster pump in the main (in) water line in the garage before my water softener?
