pitless adapter for submersible pump hookup
 
Does it make any sense to use a 1 1/4" pitless adapter if my house lines are all only 1"?. My well guy is telling me the gpm on the pump will be higher. But the 1 1/4" hes selling me is $220 compared to $150 for the 1" pitless

If the pipe from the pump to the pitless and the pipe from the pitless to the house is only 1" then there is no reason to use an 1.25 pitless

We havent ran any of those lines yet. If i use a 1 1/4" pitless adapter and same size pipe to the pump head and into the house to the pressure tank. What benefits do i really have over 1" . Slighty more pressure?
