We have owned the house for 5 years and not had any water pressure issues.
The pressure gauge on the pipe to the pressure tank has been rusted since we bought the house. The pressure tank is blue and roughly 4 ft tall. The pressure gauge reads 24 psi. The label on the pressure tank states that it has been pre-charged for 30 psi. The pressure gauge reading does not change at all when we turn on faucets, flush toilets or run the washing machine. Am I correct in guessing that the pressure gauge is stuck or broken and needs to be replaced?
What should a typical pressure gauge reading be? And how much should it go up and down upon water usage. What factors affect pressure gauge reading? The pump goes on and off as expected when faucets are turned on and off.
The water pressure is pretty good except when we flush 2 toilets at the same time and turn on a faucet when the toilet reservoirs are refilling, the faucet pressure is very low. This drop in water pressure has just recently presented itself. How do I determine how much water draw is supported by the well & pump?
I don't seem to have any documentation on the well & pump. Is this something that is filed with the town? Where could I get a record of this?
