We have a well system in our home, which is multi-story (basement and 2 floors), and I am looking to optimize the setup of the system to make it more efficient. As you can tell from the photo whoever plumbed it did some weird things. The system includes a well tank (blue), holding tank (gray), water softener (tan), 50-micron filter, and 20-micron filter (black/blue).
Some issues we have run into is water pressure when multiple items run. (I.E. Faucet and (top load) washer or shower with faucet and toilet going) These are intermittent issues and we have learned somewhat to stagger usage to overcome this. Another issue it seems we have is, not having enough water in the well tank and/or holding tank to adequately supply the home when trying to use 2 washing machines, people in different showers at one time, water the garden/plants (I.E. Long water run time). Also, I have a noticeable dip in PSI from my well, at 70 PSI, to my holding tank, at about 55-60 PSI. From the well to the holding tank it only passes through a 50-micron filter which is cleaned every 2 weeks, minimum.
With all of that said, I am hoping someone can suggest a more efficient and compact setup of the well system that will also resolve the shortage of water too. The system currently goes left to right well tank (blue), 50-micron filter, holding tank (gray), 20-micron filter (black/blue), water softener (tan) then to supply the house. I am not sure what size any of the tanks are or how many gallons they hold. Also on the setup if someone could recommend a chlorinator or UV sanitizer that would be awesome!
Our well is 600 feet deep in the backyard.
