Low pressure issues
« on: November 14, 2021, 03:30:28 PM »
I currently have a CVS1A setup but am experiencing very low pressure throughout the house.  Basically we can only use one fixture at a time.  I have a 305' well with a Goulds 3/4 hp 7 GPM series pump.  Based on your compatible pump types the maximum depth to water level is 215'.  Could this be the issue?  If so, do you have any suggested solutions.  Thanks

With 60 PSI you would not even need soap in the shower it would be so strong.  You must have a blockage after the gauge.  Do you have a filter clogged or a valve partially closed?
