Just a quick pump question for all the pump guys out there. My house pump will not pump up any higher than 40 PSI. I had to adjust the pressure switch to get the thing to shut off. I have approx. 20 GPM at the yard hydrant near the well. When it comes through the house it goes through a hydrocharger and then into an air/water tank. Volume at this point is restricted to about 7 GPM. After going through the iron filter it is reduced to 5 GPM. I cannot have my outside faucet, W/M, and shower on without drastically reducing my shower to the point of making it worthless. This is a new problem that has just occured. Am I correct in thinking that if I could get my pump to increase in pressure, my volume would increase proportionally? The pump is only 6 years old and approx 100' down. So what causes a pump to not build sufficient pressure? Should I just call a pump guy?
