Sudden increase in water pressure

After changing the well pump and pressure tank, the water pressure suddenly increased. It appears the pressure switch has malfunctioned (it was acting up and stopping water flow altogether). Could the pressure switch be the cause behind the sudden increase in water pressure?

What causes my booster pump to increase pressure even after I shut power and or water supply off?


something wrong here. your incoming pressure is 4 psi ( tank pressure to the pump and you use a pump to boost pressure to a maximum of 65 psi at which point the pump is shut off ( all taps close off)
yet with no pumps running the pressure goes up to 100 psi
Find where you are getting pressure in that is making the pump leak
if you have 100 psi to the pump when it is turned off, then it would not be turning on ( power on) as the shut off pressure is set at 65 psi and the line pressure is 100 psi

How do i increase the water pressure in my house?


you'll be needing the following:
1. water pump (depending on your water source
2. pressure tank (size depends on the no. of users the many users the bigger the needed pressure tank)
3. pressure switch
4. pressure gauge (to know the running pressure on your system)
5. assorted plumbing fittings (depending on the type of installation)
6. electrical fixtures (depending on the type of installation)
These items should be installed properly by a qualified water pump installer so you can achieved the water pressure needed.
I hope I've been of help to you. Good luck

Water dispenser on fridge not working - water pressure fine, could the line be frozen and why would that start happening all of a sudden?


Check to see if the water reservoir in the bottom of the frig is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the frig temp down.

I am putting in a new shower and want to put in a pump to increase the flow of water to the shower head,what pump do I need? I will put it next to the hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard,I also want...


First of all, the normal water pressure is anywhere from 50 to 70 lbs. Why do you need a pump? What you need is just water pressure. The shower head will only put out a fraction of that pressure with the valve body inside the head. Since you do not say what water pressure you have, check all the pressure lines to make sure there is no blockage. As for the water tank, well, 50 gallons is always better.

Jenn Air Ice Maker Ejector Fingers Freeze Up


Hello, Yes you may be on the right track. Some manufactures like Jenn-Air, Viking, Sub-Zero, etc. require a higher inlet water pressure across the inlet solenoid valve to close the diaphragm after the ice machine stops calling for water. There are multiple solutions. But first, check the water pressure to your home to make sure you have 65-70 psi of pressure entering the home. Here is a link to our web site for a reasonably priced solution to increase the discharge working pressure from your RO System storage tank to the Jenn Air: http://www.puresafe.com/RO/html/eps-3tpp.html This is a modification that can be done to your system. It is a Patented Piston Actuated Permeate Pump that relieves the Permeate or Pure Water "BACK"-Pressure when the pure water enters the storage tank so the tank can store more water and build more working pressure. You could also increase the size of the storage tank, increase the size and daily production of the Membrane Filter to recover the tank water quicker, or add additional storage tanks for more volume of storage. Another method would be to use an "Atmospheric Storage Tank" with the RO System, and a Pressure Delivery Booster Pump to **** the water out of the storage tank and Pump it to the required location under higher pressure and flow when compared to the Conventional Pressurized Bladder Tank that you own now. The drill down path to our site for this information would be: www.puresafe.com, Purification, Reverse Osmosis, Residential, Pump Assisted Reverse Osmosis, EPS-3TPP, or other systems on that page. Hope this helped. Victor Kernes
