I'm trying to increase pressure to my outside hoses for lawn watering and noticed that the sillcocks are all after my whole house water filter and they are all 1/2". Because of this, when I run the sprinklers, the whole house filter gets dirty and clogged very quickly. The plumbing from my well pressure tank is 3/4" and the pressure switch is set to 40/60.
Would I see a worthwhile pressure and flow increase to my outside impact sprinklers if I:
- Plumb in a 3/4" tee before the whole house filter and run 1" PEX lines to sillcock valves
- Replace existing 1/2" sillcocks with 3/4" sillcocks
- Run 3/4" hose from sillcock to impact sprinklers
Thanks in advance!
