The pressure tank is a brand new precharged tank and brand new switch...it was precharged at 40psi and when we replaced the switch we followed the directions and took it down to 18psi (2psi less than the switch) everything seems to be working fine but the pressure is alot lower than before.
Yes the gauge is working and yes it turns on at 20 and off at 40. So I think after re-reading your first response....if I purchase a 30/50 switch and adjust the pressure on the tank to 28psi I will have more water pressure at the faucet?
The pressure tank is 35 gallon.
Oh ....I think we were confused.....we set the tank 2 psi below to cut on......not 2 psi below the cut off so the pressure on the tank should be 38 psi?
No..your good....we weren't confused at your comment.....it was at the instructions I read with the switch. I think I put way too much thought into it and your answer made me go 'ding ding' ! lol. Okay you straightened that out for me and I Thank you very much. Now I have one other question.... before replacing this tank....we had a 20 gallon pressure tank...and we often ran out of water (we have a very weak well) by purchasing a larger tank will that decrease the frequency of running out of water with the same usage as before? or will it not make any difference?
Ok. Thank you very much! Merry Christmas to you too. and have a Healthy and Happy New Year!
