It seems ever since a developer turned a single family house into a row of townhouses my water pressure has dropped. I spoke with a couple of my neighbors and they have the same problem. One neighbor had their water main replaced and said it fixed their problem, but I don't know to what extent.
I have about 30-35 psi at my spigot which is about 10 feet from the meter. I can barely use 3 appliances at the same time and notice a tremendous drop with the sprinkler on.
I was going to ask my neighbor if I could see what their water pressure was before I called someone in to install a new main. A friend of mine borrowed my guage and measured 70psi a few towns over.
1) What is a reasonable psi and how many gpm?
2) If I installed a water pressure booster pump (cheaper than a main) would the volume affect the performance?
3) Besides checking the gpm and psi, what else could I check?
